Commenting on the LawTech Alliance initiative, Insider editor Charles Christian said “With the legal landscape in a state of constant flux thanks to a flurry of regional and international mergers, legal IT directors are increasingly challenged to ensure they have agile information systems able to react swiftly both to changing market conditions and client expectations. At the same time they are grappling with the issues associated with secure cloud computing, BYOD  and lawyer mobility. Mindful of this, Chilli IQ’s new national networking initiative, to allow CIOs and technology specialists working in law firms in Australia and New Zealand to join an online community and share insights regarding best practice in legal technology, could not come at a better time.”
