The 2023 Tech and Law Report

Unmissable Tech and the Law Report for LPI Subscribers

Thomson Reuters has released the fourth Tech & the Law 2023 report, unveiling compelling insights on the future of legal innovation from over 1,000 legal professionals across Australia and New Zealand.

This year’s survey delves deeper into the impact of technology in the legal sector on efficiency, talent retention and improved client service. For the first time, the report also explores the emerging perceptions and fears around generative AI.

Preview of key insights

Divided into two parts – private practice and corporate counsel, the report reveals the key priorities and challenges ahead, with strategic insights to benchmark your business against those of your peers.

Private practice and corporate counsel are also placing more emphasis on technology to improve their operations and workflow by increasing their investment in this area. While legal departments and law firms are nuanced in many ways, they are aligned on improving their cybersecurity and data protection, too, by 52% of legal departments and 58% of law firms.

“As digital transformation and cybersecurity resilience gain prominence, legal practitioners face new opportunities to safeguard their clients’ interests and uphold the highest standards of data protection.” Carl Olson, Vice President of Proposition for Asia and Emerging Markets at Thomson Reuters.
