Embracing Legal Technology: Overcoming Hesitation for Increased Efficiency and ROI

Embracing Legal Technology: Overcoming Hesitation for Increased Efficiency and ROI

In the world of patent law, changing entrenched behaviors and processes can be daunting. For successful implementation, all members of your practice must embrace new legal technology. The reluctance to adopt legal technology can hinder growth and, ultimately, stifle your ROI.

At Juristat, we understand the hesitations that patent attorneys and professionals may have when it comes to integrating legal technology into their workflow. Yet, we firmly believe that overcoming these hurdles is possible and essential for keeping your book of business profitable.

Why you’re stuck

The first step in addressing these concerns is acknowledging the inefficiencies of current processes. While familiarity with traditional methods may provide a sense of security, it often comes at the cost of productivity, agility, and, ultimately, profit. 

Your firm leadership might see new technology and the process change that comes with it as a cost center. CFOs are charged with minding the dollars and cents and identifying risks and downsides. Firm partners and department heads are concerned with maintaining the flow of work and quality standards. 

It makes sense that changing behaviors, especially entrenched ones, is a challenge. However, with the right strategies in place, it is entirely achievable. From fostering a culture of innovation to providing comprehensive training and support, there are various approaches to encourage organizational change. The right legal tech partner can clearly communicate the benefits of technological advancement, effectively driving adoption and facilitating process improvement and increases in revenue.

How the right legal tech partner can move you forward

One of the biggest obstacles to embracing legal technology is the persistence of legacy thinking. The belief that "this is how we've always done it." 

Partnering with the right legal tech provider can make all the difference in easing the implementation and adoption process. Their expertise and support ensure a smooth transition, minimizing disruption and maximizing ROI.

A legal tech vendor with an extensive trial, implementation, and onboarding process can go a long way toward assuaging any concerns your leadership may have. Plus, ongoing training and support from an attentive team ensure you’re getting the most out of the service.

The benefits that come from changing firm behavior

Embracing legal technology is not just about keeping up with the times; it's about staying ahead of the curve. While the prospect of change may seem daunting, the rewards far outweigh the risks. By partnering with Juristat and adopting a proactive approach to innovation, firms can unlock new levels of efficiency, productivity, and profitability. The future of law is here, and it's time to embrace it.
