Thanks again for joining me, it's been a lot of fun.
I do agree with your and Casey’s assessment. Technology, when properly deployed is a value add to the delivery of legal services. In my mind, AI (and many other technologies) only enhance the critical thinking, mental agility, and ability to synthesize complex inputs of lawyers thus making them ever more critical to the goals of delivering efficient and effective legal services.
Law firms must continue to play a critical role in the deployment of legal technology not only because clients are demanding it, but because ever growing business complexity does as well. Legal service is about legal advice and established methods to provision that advice. The key here however, is not to deploy technology for technology sake but rather to lead in its development, deployment and scale. Baker McKenzie continues to lead as a technology driven firm across many practice areas and disciplines because of our commitment to those ideas but also because of our commitment to be “demand driven” rather than “supply driven” with our clients. We continue to have our clients provide insight, input and influence over new technologies and ask them to meet us at the intersection of law and technology to help us evolve and enhance these capabilities.
