So many motivations, including the sharp rise in the availability and proven effectiveness of legal technology in recent years, confirms what we already know – the future of law WILL be technology-based - it simply has to, in order to keep up with the rest of the world. Consequently, in more and more firms, you’ll now find in-house digital strategists and innovation hubs dedicated to rolling out digital transformation. But still, in some firms the adoption and general enthusiasm for technology from lawyers is slow and reluctant. Sounds familiar? If so, until you tackle this mindset block and get your leaders and lawyers on board, you’ll never truly reap the full benefits of digital transformation.
If you’re keen to inject some innovation into your firm’s work practices, creating an innovation charter could be a good place to start. We asked Eileen Burns, chief digital officer at Arthur Cox LLP, to share how the firm is successfully engaging the whole firm in its digital transformation journey, by committing to an innovation charter.
