We see opportunities and risks from every angle by combining our legal expertise and business understanding

We believe businesses need legal services that provide certainty in a time of disruption, that help them think differently and even turn that disruption into their advantage.

We quickly identify opportunities and risks and provide clear, actionable advice on the best response. We’re legal partners who embrace technology to enable smarter, faster decision making. We understand our client’s businesses and how they need to evolve. 

At PwC we’ve got lawyers. But we’ve also got accountants, consultants, experts in industries, deals, risk, tax and technology. We work together to help clients unlock value throughout their business while protecting their people and their organisation.

The future of Legal

The legal profession is going through significant change. Legal teams must adapt quickly to changing client and employee demands brought on by advances in technology. There is a growing need to get more value from legal services and those teams that succeed will be agile, innovative and knowledgeable.

Find out more about three areas where we expect to see significant change in the future: technology, people and business.

Technology has been one of the biggest disruptors to the legal sector in recent years, and we don’t expect that to change. PwC’s legal teams lead the market in providing tech-enabled legal solutions to clients including harnessing, amongst others: contract lifecycle management, AI pre-screening, document generation and data analytics tools.

Businesses face continuous pressure to modernise and we’re able to provide a full range of services to help our clients: from our analysis of the effectiveness of a legal function and the provision of proven consulting services, to embedding new LegalTech strategy in order to optimise business practice.
