Top Ten Tech Trends

Top Ten Tech Trends by pendragon David Whelan There are no new ideas, right? There do not seem to be any in the legal technology world, at least from what we see lawyers adopting on a regular basis. The ABA Journal’s December issue gives an overview of some technology trends that are insightful because of the senior law firm staff they interview for the perspectives they can share.

But at the end of the day, most lawyers aren’t working in large law firms and most of the technology that’s being developed for professional services firms is beyond the reach of solo and small firm practitioners, however glitzy.  I’m including a link to the Journal’s article, although the content disappears after awhile.
