With the move towards digitisation of legal processes, PDFs are set to become more important than ever. But how do you ensure that the workflow around PDF generation, sharing and signing is as efficient as possible, while delivering the best end-user experience? We take a look with Adobe at how its users benefit from the ability to scan, generate, review, mark up, securely share and sign documents in a cradle to grave workflow, benefiting from integrations with multiple vendors including Microsoft and iManage. We look at the latest regulations surrounding eSignatures and the benefits of adoption. And we look at examples of how the accounting sector is using Adobe’s platform.
Legal IT Insider held a webinar on the future of digital dictation and related technologies, in the legal profession. By ‘related technologies’, we mean such things as speech recognition, task delegation and management.
At the same time as these technologies are getting new lease of life – partly from technology innovation and partly as a result of an increased desire to provide ‘work from home’ capabilities, they are also under pressure from several other developments. These include:
– the increasing ability of a new generations of lawyers to touch-type
- the introduction of Microsoft Dictate technology as a ‘free’ add-on to, what we now have to learn to call, Microsoft 365
– the development of Microsoft Teams as a tool to provide generic task delegation and management capabilities.
In a brand-new series of on camera interviews, Legal IT Insider editor in chief, Caroline Hill, will speak to CIOs and lawyers across the globe to map out the way lawyers use technology and how firms’ strategy is supporting that.

Among the success stories of law firms that have adapted to remote working, one of the biggest ongoing problems is billing, and the absence in many cases of an online, paperless process. Firms are continuing in many cases to send staff in to the office because they are unable to bill remotely. We spoke to Shishir Shetty, vice president of technology services at Wilson Allen, and Nick Hodgson, finance director at Bevan Brittan – a client of Wilson Allen’s Proforma Tracker – about the challenges that law firms are facing; managing year end; and what firms can do now, given that the recovery from COVID-19 is expected to be a long and bumpy road.
