The economic pressures from increasingly demanding clients and aggressive global competition mean law firms are now obliged to provide much more than just good lawyers.
To maintain competitive advantage, they need to deliver this legal expertise efficiently, effectively and innovatively. Commercial capability, good business process and effective technology are now crucial to success in the legal sector, and the IT function is a key enabler to this.
