Legal Technology greatly influences the way General Counsel work. For the average lawyer, it is a challenge to delve into technology and legal software and in general we do not have much affinity with it. We don’t always know exactly how to automate the department, what the standard is and what it will ultimately bring us. However, it is very important for the General Counsel to be in control and to work efficiently, also in view of the “more for less” challenge, globalization and the increasing compliance regulations. You can do this by further automating the department and workload.
