Innovate or Fail: Why firms should embrace technology

Disruption. It’s something that is happening within small to medium-sized law firms now more than ever. Some are adopting new technology, causing the firm to pause and learn new things. Others are ignoring new technology, making the firm fall behind its competitors. Both cause disruption—but which is better?

We completely understand that legal technology is complex and ever-changing. And for lawyers that weren’t taught technology strategy in law school (AKA all of them), navigating through finding the right tool for them can be overwhelming. But here’s the thing—small to medium-sized law firms need to adopt technology in order to punch above their weight and compete against larger law firms.

But how do firms even begin looking for the right technology? It’s simple. Read reviews. Book demos. Try out free trials. Most (if not all!) legal technology companies understand that adopting new technology is a huge step and are willing to give firms a free test drive before buying.

However, once deciding which technology to incorporate into their practice, lawyers quickly see a large difference in how much additional work they can take on. They start making more money. They start differentiating themselves by their ability to be agile. They notice a difference in their client’s happiness. And on a personal level, they’re finding themselves getting home in time for dinner.

So, isn’t it obvious? It’s time to embrace technology. To embrace the fear of the unknown. To embrace disruption. You won’t regret taking dealcloser for a test drive—we promise.

Let’s talk about how legal technology (and dealcloser, in specific) is right for you and your firm at next week’s ABA Tech Show. Come by our booth (#513) where we’ll be giving free demos, free trials and heavily discounted subscriptions. But if you can’t make it, be sure to make your way to our Chicago Legal Drinks mixer on February 27.
