How to Get Your Firm Ready for AI [Webinar]

Artificial intelligence has been boosting the performance of some of the biggest law firms and in-house teams for years. Now, AI solutions are available to firms of any size to help increase their speed and efficiency of analysis. Boutique firms can compete with the slower-moving giants by giving clients more for their billable hours, in areas such as contract analysis, due diligence, and lease abstraction.

The results are often phenomenal. JPMorgan now saves 36,000 hours per year analyzing commercial-loan agreements, thanks to an application called COIN (for Contract Intelligence) developed by their internal team.
Solutions broadly available – such as Kira by Kira Systems, which recently partnered with NetDocuments – cite productivity improvements of up to 40% for their users. Whether that time is used to win cases, increase case load, or keep costs down for clients is the discretion of the deploying firm.

But there are risks. For example, AI can’t analyze what it can’t read, and what it reads is text. On average, 20% to 30% of the documents in a firm – in folders and buried in email – are images. Image-based files such as faxes and scanned documents can only be interpreted as pictures by AI and document management systems. Like a self-driving car that can’t see the color red, AI can make decisions based on incomplete information – potentially to disastrous results.

In addition to negative client outcomes, firms can incur penalties for breaches in professional conduct. Comment 8 on The ABA’s Rule 1.1 requires that the competence of a lawyer extends to the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology. At least 27 states have adopted some form of this Model Rule. While AI software can increase the speed with which decisions can be made, failure to employ the technology effectively could lead to the grounds for a malpractice claim or suspension by the bar.
If you plan an AI proof-of-concept in the next 24 months, or are just trying to get your head around the possibilities that AI presents to law firms, this is a “can’t miss” webinar.
A recent legal tech survey shows 80% of respondents plan to spend budget on AI in the next 24 months, yet more than half say they have a ton of questions such as:
  • What AI technology is available?
  • What functions & processes can be enhanced by AI?
  • What are clear AI business cases to present to tech committees & boards?
According to some legal technologists, AI enabled paralegals will provide greater value to the firm than most of today’s senior partners.


That’s why we’ve invited Allan MacKenzie, legal tech journalist and former Wall Street IT Director, to share practical, real world examples of how law firms are prepping today to leverage AI and planning to apply AI next year and beyond.

Join us for practical, real world examples that demonstrate how firms can gain more insights from legal data and documents TODAY, while setting the stage for digital transformation.

You should attend this Webinar if:

  • Your firm competes to win and wants to leverage AI as a strategic advantage
  • Want to understand how to make the most of your existing technology investment while planning for the future
  • Have gaps in your existing data and document-related systems and processes that can be solved through automation

Key takeaways will include:

  • Tips on how firms can set a solid foundation for innovation TODAY by ensuring that they have control over their documents and data
  • Hidden compliance risks that firms can resolve while setting the stage for AI
  • Real world examples of how firms can embrace AI to set themselves apart from competitors
