Tech GC Report: In-house legal still “buried” under low value work

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). ;new advadsCfpAd( 163652 );;new advadsCfpAd( 155475 );;new advadsCfpAd( 155474 );;new advadsCfpAd( 163652 );;new advadsCfpAd( 155475 );( window.advanced_ads_ready || jQuery( document ).ready ).call( null, function() {var $legalslider2136392724 = jQuery( “.legal-slider-2136392724” );$legalslider2136392724.on( “unslider.ready”, function() { jQuery( “div.custom-slider ul li” ).css( “display”, “block” ); });$legalslider2136392724.unslider({ delay:10000, autoplay:true, nav:false, arrows:false, infinite:true });$legalslider2136392724.on(“mouseover”, function(){$legalslider2136392724.unslider(“stop”);}).on(“mouseout”, function() {$legalslider2136392724.unslider(“start”);});});

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. ;new advadsCfpAd( 163901 );;new advadsCfpAd( 163650 );;new advadsCfpAd( 156117 );;new advadsCfpAd( 163901 );;new advadsCfpAd( 163650 );( window.advanced_ads_ready || jQuery( document ).ready ).call( null, function() {var $legalslider263235339 = jQuery( “.legal-slider-263235339” );$legalslider263235339.on( “unslider.ready”, function() { jQuery( “div.custom-slider ul li” ).css( “display”, “block” ); });$legalslider263235339.unslider({ delay:10000, autoplay:true, nav:false, arrows:false, infinite:true });$legalslider263235339.on(“mouseover”, function(){$legalslider263235339.unslider(“stop”);}).on(“mouseout”, function() {$legalslider263235339.unslider(“start”);});});
