Law Firm IT


IT's role in technology excellence and innovation

A law firm’s IT organization is critical to the firm’s ability to provide legal services – the shift to remote or hybrid work has emphasized its importance. IT not only powers firms’ day-to-day operations, it can also serve as a foundation for firms’ ability to differentiate themselves through innovation. Firms that neglect this important function do so at some risk, not only of obsolescence and security problems, but also the risk of falling behind their competitors because they lack the infrastructure to support innovation.
