CPA Global’s IGNITE! 2017 conference, in Dubrovnik, Croatia provided law firms an opportunity to discuss the adoption of new technology for their firms. Managing risk is a constant concern for law firms. Many are cautious about embracing innovative working practices for fear of breaking what is currently not broken.
However, with a higher volume and velocity of IP filings, IP law firms are under pressure. Increased demand for IP protection is good news for lawyers, but firms are having to do more with less time and resources.
In this environment, technology can have a transformative effect. Technology can improve decision making and secure a law firm’s position as trusted partner. The questions for many firms are how to adopt technology in the right areas and how to ensure it is deployed across a firm to deliver maximum value.
To address these questions, law firms should consider these five stages for technology adoption to be successful:
In today’s increasingly digitised economy, the IP industry is finally embracing the opportunities afforded by technology. With advances in software and data technology, there is potential to further improve practice efficiency and better manage risk. Through the integration of technology, law firms have more time to focus on higher value strategic tasks for clients and growing new business.
