Actually, yes, Much of law, and thus client billings, is procedural and admin based. LegalTech reduces friction and will eradicate a large proportion of this, which is a good thing
Can you give an example of how LegalTech benefits me?
The most common example is the availability of legal templates. 10 years ago you would have had to call in favour of a friendly lawyer who would send a boilerplate agreement for you to use. Now these are mostly available free online for most simple agreements. That’s legal tech in action.
