Following the COVID-19 outbreak, in June 2020, PracticeEvolve ran an Australia-wide survey to explore predictions for the industry for 2021. Respondents reported that the impact of COVID-19 will see firms innovative and adopt new forms of technology (71%), remote working will play a much larger role in the legal profession (76%), more firms will expand the use of existing technology to improve legal work processes (50%). Firms will become leaner, more agile, and adaptable (55%) and virtual offices will become more common (47%). There will be a greater focus on retaining and strengthening client relationships (45%). Crisis management and risk mitigation strategies will become part of law firm planning (34%).
As a champion and advocate for the mid-tier legal market, PracticeEvolve is hosting a virtual roundtable on Tuesday, 23 March 2021, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM (AEDT).
The roundtable brings together a panel of specialist Legal IT Consultants to provide an honest assessment of the market and offer their own advice and expertise in terms of selecting Legal IT and implementing projects to ensure a strong ROI.
Each panellist joins with an impressive track record of providing guidance, advice, and project implementations within law firms. Join Jackie White, Chris Kilpatrick and Steven Dore to listen to their views and ask your questions.
Here is a snapshot of some of the questions that will be addressed:
- What does a successful technology selection and implementation process look like?
- What questions should firms be asking their teams, as well as prospective vendors, during the requirements evaluation process?

- What metrics can firms put in place to ensure the new technology is accepted and adopted quickly?
- How can legal leaders help with implementing technology and process improvement?
- Which area of operations will require the most investment by law firms in the future?
