In-house legal teams still feel buried under low-value work, despite a year of increased tech adoption, growth within the legal function, and rising legal budgets, a new report finds.
And 51 per cent would consider going freelance, or exploring a career at an alternative legal services provider (ASLP).
The Tech GC report, in partnership with Wilson Sonsini, explores the findings from a survey with GCs, CLOs, senior legal leaders and legal operations professionals at high-growth tech companies across Europe and the US. It asks how in-house legal’s relationship with technology has changed over the past year and which tools lawyers use to agree contracts – the majority use Microsoft Word but around a third say they use Google Docs.
It also features analysis from Wilson Sonsini’s Chief Innovation Officer, David Wang, as well as on-the-record insights from tech GCs at some of the world’s fastest-growing companies, including Wise, Omnipresent, Attest, and more.
