Strap in for the ride — it’s time to go digital

The notion of the traditional law firm is fast diminishing, vanquished by technologies that are bringing both significant challenges and exciting solutions to the old model.

An SRA report has highlighted that as many as 160 UK law firms are at immediate risk of collapse: a stark warning to others to assess the role of technology in the legal delivery model.

Bull and Bason’s Law Firms in the Digital Age is a highly practical report with exclusive insight into Impact to Information, a ground-breaking new process for digital-age law firms.

Used well, technology can improve processes and efficiencies to have a positive impact on your firm’s profitability.
