Shieldcast: Episode 012

Daniel Grant Smith on the barriers to legaltech adoption

Head of Engagement at Legatics Daniel Grant Smith discusses recently conducted research by Legatics into the barriers to legaltech adoption and the findings published in their Behaviour Change and AI Microservices whitepapers.



In this Transactions Management episode of Shieldcast, Dan and Geoff discuss:  

  • What behavioural barriers there are to the adoption of legaltech in law firms
  • Why the structure of billable hours and the challenge of 'not enough time in the day' has prevented lawyers from implementing new technologies
  • How the pandemic has affected the digital transformation of the legal sector
  • To what extent partners need to be driving the uptake of legaltech and their responsibility to role model 
  • How carrying out research and collecting data can influence product developments
