Like many industries, the legal profession is going through a period of significant transformation.
Business is changing and legal teams are having to react and innovate. The traditional legal system and ways of delivering legal services are no longer fit to meet todays needs. Because of this, organisations demand more from their legal teams. They need to be better connected, embrace more innovative technology solutions and deliver at a lower cost.
As organisations become increasingly global, they need their legal teams to understand these requirements. Legal teams are recruiting and upskilling to make sure they have broad knowledge that covers many jurisdictions.
To drive efficiencies, in-house legal teams are introducing innovative technology that helps them keep more work in-house. Suppliers are also turning to technology to help them provide outsourced services at a lower cost.
Legal teams are under pressure to show their value and help their business save money - not just in legal spend, but across the wider business.
Corporate strategy can affect finances, workloads, resourcing and planning for in-house legal teams, which now requires increased agility and responsiveness.
During this time of transformation, legal teams have the opportunity to demonstrate their unique value. By providing certainty in uncertain times, they can help organisations react to change and capitalise on it. Those teams that see opportunities and risks early, and provide clear, practical solutions can help organisations to evolve and grow.
