Welcome to the Legal Landscape 2016, produced jointly by Zylpha and Converge TS. Our aim, in this report, is to look at the key issues affecting law firms’ IT and to record case management experience.
In contrast to many other reports, which broadcast the agenda only of those who produce them, we aim to deliver an overview from some of the key protagonists of legal innovation, both in practice and in-house. In short, their views are a snapshot of the rapidly evolving world of legal process automation and we hope they will either underscore or inspire the efforts of others in the legal sector.
The key themes to emerge from the research are a real portent of those areas where legal IT faces significant challenges. From Cybersecurity and Agility through to the digitisation of the Courts there’s a great deal here to define 2016 as a tipping point in favour of legal technology. Our thanks go to our highly insightful contributors from: Anthony Collins, DAC Beachcroft, Genus Law, Olliers, Poole Alcock, South London Legal Partnership and Total Conveyancing Services.
