The Technology Imperative: Digital disruption in the legal sector

October 2018

With technology set to grow significantly over the next 5-10 years in the legal sector, the need for action by UK law firms is becoming crucial.

As the LawTech market rapidly evolves and with investment in legal start-ups on the rise, law firms are recognising the transformative potential that new technologies have to offer. Our survey of almost 40 senior decision makers in the legal sector showed unanimous agreement (95%) that their firms’ investment in technology would likely increase over the next 5 to 10 years. This is echoed by Government, legal regulators and professional bodies who are becoming more active in their positioning around the issue.
