The C-suite 2021 Technology Priorities – An Interesting New Blog and Podcast Series

Post by |

Recently, LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions surveyed law firms to understand their technology priorities for 2021. We asked C-level executives and Heads of IT and Innovation, in which areas they believed automation could provide the greatest impact in their firm. Perhaps not surprisingly, the business leaders cited business process and workflow, document assembly, and management information and reporting, as their prime targets for automation. Clearly, there is clarity amongst law firm leaders on where their priorities lie.

However, from speaking to law firms about their approach to addressing these business requirements, there appears to be some perplexity in how they can effectively adopt automation.  

In this exciting, new Blog Series, Simon Farthing, Commercial and Marketing Director at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions offers his perspective on how law firms can potentially approach automation for these priorities areas.

To kick off this series, the first blog is titled, Looking to Automate Workflow? Some Food for Thought!
