Is Your Law Firm Helping You Stay on the Cutting Edge of Tech?
John Davis, Omar Haroun, Heyward Bonyata and Matt Jackson
About this talk
Law Firm Partners have a new role to add to their credentials: Tech Advisor. Clients look to their law firm partners to provide best-in-class legal advice. But, with increasing pressure to digitize and “do more with less,” the best advice now must include technology solutions. To stay competitive and deliver value for customers, law firms must not only engage applications to solve both routine and novel legal issues but also provide expertise on driving the most appropriate use of technology on every matter. As a result, legal domain expertise has expanded to encompass a constant eye on technology and an ongoing obligation to vet and engage new technologies that can deliver better results across risk, time, and cost factors.
Our expert panelists from leading AMLaw100 firms, Crowell & Davis, Sidley Austin, and Nelson Mullins, Riley & Scarborough, will share how they’ve evaluated and implemented technology for their firms and customers, including how they assess various solutions for sensitive data analysis. We will provide helpful takeaways to better equip legal leaders, including:
• Key questions you should be asking your law firms about the use of technology
• How law firms get comfortable with the “risk” of new technology
• “Low hanging fruit” that is ripe for AI and automation
• Considerations for creating defensible workflows
• Omar Haroun (moderator)
• Matthew Jackson, Counsel at Sidley Austin
• Heyward Bonyata, Attorney at Nelson Mullins, Riley & Scarborough
• John Davis, Co-Chair of eDiscovery and Information Management practice at Crowell & Moring
