Review of Legal IT Landscapes 2018 report
Briefing's flagship Legal IT Landscapes report asks IT and operational leaders at top-100 law firms how a mass of potential technology priorities are changing. Firms can easily compare and contrast their strategic choices for 2018 with the hopes and fears of the wider market. The report also includes our annual analysis of how technologies themselves compare when it comes to the likely boosts in internal efficiency and market competitiveness firms can expect. Rupert will give you a whistle-stop tour of the report and the key highlights.
