The ITechLaw Dublin conference saw an International Technology Law Association panel examine how technology is disrupting the legal world. In a session entitled The Move From Pen and Paper to Bits and Bytes, panellists looked at how technology can help meet demand from clients for greater cost management and transparency, efficiency in service delivery and proof of value. Chris Lepp, chief commercial counsel, UK and Europe at Mercer, said “Clients won’t pay for juniors to do tasks which are low level and inefficient.” He also noted: “For legal professionals evaluating software is not their gig. They don’t understand it, they are experts on the legal side.”
