The disruption caused by the global pandemic of 2020 is impacting law firms and legal departments already, with legal professionals taking action, and also projecting and planning for changes to come. With no clear end to the crisis in sight, however, many legal professionals are faced with uncertainty as they deal with the challenges of ensuring business continuity today and building business resiliency for the future.
During the summer, Wolters Kluwer issued the survey − Impact of the COVID Crisis on the Legal Sector − to assess how the crisis has affected legal professionals in Europe today, and what the implications are for law firms and legal departments over the next year(s). The survey includes insights from 1,866 legal professionals in law firms across 10 European countries and examines impacts on business; cost management; ways of working; and technology and investment.
During this webinar, panel members Tobias Heining (European Legal Tech Association – ELTA), María Jesús González-Espejo (European Legal Tech Association – ELTA), Marcus Schmitt (European Company Lawyers Association – ECLA) and Grégoire Miot (Wolters Kluwer) will discuss the findings of the survey and give their perspectives on how the crisis has affected legal professionals in Europe today, and what the implications are for the legal sector over the next year(s).
