Improving the Client/Firm Relationship With Technology

Technological change has presented an ongoing challenge to corporate law departments and to the law firms (and other external service providers) with which those departments work. In-house lawyers have also experienced frustration in their relationships with those outside lawyers in respect of coordination of effort, collaboration and similar issues.

By focusing on technology that can improve that coordination and collaboration, though, claw departments can address both sources of frustration simultaneously. The options for doing so have multiplied significantly in recent years, so a law department looking to work with outside counsel more effectively has a considerable number of choices available to it.
