We're just three days into the New Year and predictions are starting to roll in on what's to come for legal tech in 2020. According to Law.com, "From ephemeral messaging to global expansion and beyond, lawyers and technologists believe eDiscovery will show no signs of stagnation in 2020."
We've witnessed a renaissance in our industry in the past decade — from adoption of cloud technologies to enhanced analytics and AI, there are no signs that developments in eDiscovery will slow down.
Sean Lynch, Director, Legal and Compliance Solutions, along with a number of other industry leaders, weighed in on what's to come in Law.com's recent article. According to Sean, new rules from the Law Societies of Canada will influence lawyers more than ever to implement technology into their cases and practice areas in order to stay ahead and competitive.
The Federation of Law Societies of Canada has implemented a new rule requiring that lawyers undertake to understand technologies relevant to their practice areas. As analytics capabilities become table stakes for discovery and contract management, we believe that this change will drive more lawyers in an already early-adopter country to integrate more advanced solutions to improve their practice.”
