Darren Gower at Eclipse says 2020 will be the year SME law firms truly embrace and leverage technology
2020 is the year your law firm finally embraces the power of technology – by introducing a case management system (CMS) into your practice.
The UK legal industry is considered one of the world leaders in adopting digital solutions. Nevertheless, there are still hundreds of firms throughout the country that are operating in a more traditional way. And they’re suffering as a result.
New technology often means big change. And many are still sceptical about investing money into new systems when they believe things to be just fine the way they are. But 2020 is going to be the year the decisionmakers stop hesitating and finally embrace more modern solutions.
There are three reasons for this. First of all, a good case management system will improve efficiencies at your firm – this in turn gives your fee earners more time so they can work with even more clients. And that, as you would expect, leads to a boost in revenues. Automation is a key feature of legal technology solutions. Hours and hours of paperwork can be reduced down to minutes – it’s good for the fee earner, the client and the firm, and it really is that simple.
