These are among the findings of the 2019 Future Ready Lawyer Survey from Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory, an independently conducted survey of 700 professionals across Europe and the U.S. in law firms, corporate legal departments and business services firms. The Survey focused on three core areas and asked lawyers to assess their current state, future priorities and preparedness to identify what it will take to be future ready in the areas of:
- Tools & technology;
- Client needs & expectations; and
- Organization & talent.
A distinct and recurring theme emerged throughout the Future Ready Lawyer Survey. Across Eu rope and the U.S., and in organizations of all sizes, technology is a key enabler of the future.
