The legal landscape is shifting dramatically, and many law firms are now questioning their pre-pandemic business and technology strategies.

With the short-term need to adapt to new ways of working and deal with economic uncertainty, business priorities and tech projects have had to change. But looking further ahead, what does this mean for those planned innovation and improvement projects?

The focus of this guest webinar is to explore how law firms can revise current strategies and reimagine their future. This expert panel session features Sarah Blair, Director of IT, Thorntons Law LLP and Derek Southall, CEO of Hyperscale.

The panel discuss:

  • How to get the most out of data to inform strategy decisions

  • What's next for legal innovation and digital transformation

  • How to build a tech platform for a digital future

  • Planning and investing over the next 12 months and beyond
