For the last Orange Rag of 2020, we spoke to seven CIOs from UK top 100 and EMEA law firms about the challenges and highlights of the year, and what their newly revised priorities are for next year. We’ll be doing the same for the US and APAC in the new year.
Everyone has a story, whether it’s managing the transition from a single site firm to working in a dispersed way; or starting a new job during COVID and having to get to know colleagues remotely; or having to implement or roll out a new core system during COVID.
PLUS in this issue we asked a handful of vendors for their views on how law firms have weathered 2020, where the gaps are, and what we can expect in 2021.
It makes for fascinating reading and we are grateful to everyone who has shared their thoughts, experiences, and learning with us. You won’t be surprised to hear that it’s a toss-up as to whether Microsoft Teams or Zoom is the winner of tech of the year. eSignatures – particularly DocuSign – also come out as a strong contender.
