“LegalTech”: we’ll be there to share insights with you
One of the key components to decreasing legal spend is leveraging technology. Corporate legal departments and law firms that need strategies and tools for integrating technology into their approach to providing legal services have a resource: “LegalTech” New York 2012 will take place on Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 at the Hilton New York.
Featuring several education tracks, the trade show can enhance understanding of new technology and help people determine its best applications. Ron Lippitt, Lumen Legal’s Vice President Global Services, will be acting as a “man on the inside” for those who cannot attend, tweeting about exciting new technology and what its impact on the industry might be.
Lumen Legal will have a presence at the trade show, in conjunction with its new partner Brightleaf, a company that provides a document automation platform to help law firms and corporate legal departments to efficiently collaborate. Brightleaf’s software, unlike many technologies retrofitted for use in the legal services environment, was created specifically for lawyers.
Using Brightleaf’s software, law firms can centralize their document creation processes, improving efficiency and enhancing clients’ perception of their work. Corporate legal departments can leverage the software to cut costs, mitigate risks, and do more with less.
Software capabilities include automated document assembly, clause libraries, and an intuitive template factory. These capabilities allow for flexibility and customization.
“Companies that have spent a lot of time and money focusing internal assets on document creation will find it can be managed much more efficiently through this tool,” Lippitt says. Internal business clients of law firms would be able to access templates that eliminate drawing up individual documents from scratch, for example.
The ease with which Brightleaf can be implemented into a service model has given it an excellent reputation in the legal technology space. The user community can access and utilize the software without extensive training. Brightleaf’s SaaS (Software as a Service) model also gives it an edge over other technology in its niche.
David Galbenski, Founder and Chairman of Lumen Legal says, “Lumen Legal applies people, process and technology to help clients perform legal services better, faster and cheaper. Going forward, the proper selection and deployment of legal technology will be critical to future success. Legal document automation software from Brightleaf is a clear step in the right direction for law firms attempting to create efficiencies while de-leveraging their law firm operating model.”
You can find Lumen Legal and Brightleaf at booth number 432 at “LegalTech.”
