Understanding key issues


Technology silos

Firms may rely on standalone, non-integrated applications that don’t share information with each other. This is a significant obstacle to efficient work methods, client service and compliance.


Digital technology is transforming the way legal professionals work. Connectivity underpins all processes including home working, court hearings, client communications and security.

Measuring performance

Economic uncertainty, combined with a changing legal landscape, puts financial and operational pressure on firms. Ongoing access to critical business data is needed to maintain stability.

Efficiency barriers

Facing the influence of fixed fees and competitive online services, firms have to do more, in less time, in order to compete. They need to focus on key tasks rather than administration.

Risk management

As legal firms transform, so do the associated risks. Assessing and managing these can be time consuming. With so many roles and processes it’s difficult to ensure best practice across a firm.


Keeping current or potential clients informed is crucial to ongoing success. But busy fee earners often don’t have the time, or channels, to quickly provide updates or information.
