What Is Legal Operations?
As defined by the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium, Legal Operations are “a set of business processes, activities, and the professionals who enable legal departments to serve their clients more effectively by applying business and technical practices to the delivery of legal services.”
Legal ops combines strategic planning, financial management, project management, and technology leverage to the practice of law, offering a 360-approach that serves today’s modern businesses.
Technology’s Role in Legal Ops
Technology plays a pivotal role in today’s digital world. Automated processes have surfaced in almost every industry, from healthcare to housing, and this inclination has begun to leave its mark on the legal sector.
According to Gartner’s report, “The Future of Legal,” teams with a technology-forward approach will outperform those without by 2025.
To achieve advanced legal operational maturity, an org must have a well-defined 5+ year technology roadmap that evolves to industry trends and adapts to ongoing benchmarks. In addition, legal professionals should approach technology procurement from the top-down ––meaning the support and advocacy for tech solutions should exist from the senior management level down.
Businesses with dedicated IT resources are well-positioned for operational maturity. However, as cloud-based technology gains traction as the safest and most reliable channel, legal teams should strive to adopt tech that functions 100% in the cloud.
