Christopher Thurn of Alacrity Law comments on why law firms are slow to adopt technology, even though it may drive up efficiency and free up time lost to admin. He says that there is a mentality among many law firms that “things have always been done the same way, with no incentive for lawyers to change.” He adds that “much legal-tech is not simple enough to use,” suggesting that technology “must be as intuitive as Google or Apple products before lawyers will adopt it.” He also points to security concerns over the cloud. Mr Thurn says that as technology has never been an integral part of the legal profession, mass adoption requires a shift in attitude.
