The legal industry has only begun to realize the potential and impact of AI on day-to-day practice. How will this technology impact the profession?Read More
The practice of law has come a long way from shorthand and stenotype or the introduction of email. Just as those technologies were groundbreaking and significantly altered the legal industry - so too will artificial intelligence (AI).

Examine the implications of AI today.

Burgeoning data volumes are in part a result of a reliance on cloud-based e-mail and voice communications, business critical applications, and low-cost storage options. How can you gain control?Read More
Traditional approaches to e-discovery can mean that the more data businesses retain both inside the cloud and out, the more they must collect, process, search, and review in discovery. Added to the sheer volume is the complexity, cost and turnaround time.
On-premise solutions can result in higher expenses and a platform designed for IT experts instead of legal teams. Add to that the unpredictable nature of e-discovery and the constant upgrading requirements, and you are quickly in an unsustainable situation.
