  • How to Create Efficiencies and Manage Risks by Designing an Automated Contract Workflow

    Formulating legal contracts can face multiple challenges throughout the process including lack of standardization, risk and compliance issues, missed deadlines and endless revisions.  Furthermore, remote work can create security and accessibility difficulties, especially when dealing with multiple parties.  Fortunately, new developments in contract drafting software can smoothen the process for lawyers by reducing risk, providing better oversight and lessen the time spent on standardized procedures.

  • The Great Resignation and the Future of Law Firms in Canada

    The Great Resignation, which saw employees leaving their jobs voluntarily in large numbers, has not left the legal industry untouched. To avoid the negative impact that mass resignations and the resulting understaffing can have, law firms need to focus on how they attempt to attract and retain top talent. To succeed at this, firms need to put an emphasis on innovation, not merely compensation. This Roundtable will explore the effects of the great resignation, the cultural shifts caused and what lawyers are now prioritizing and the role of technology. 

    • Exploring macro trends in the legal industry 
    • The movement of law firms and the virtual law firm 
    • What is technology’s role in this?
