“Everyone is talking about AI, but I’m not sure they will be able to use it appropriately in 2017. Even though people are talking about it, I don’t think we will be able to use it in legal services. Consolidation. We will see more mergers. More investment in alternative legal services providers, which will take work away from lawyers and law firms.”

“Cloud-based platforms. The expansion of Saas. The reemergence of ECA primarily as a result of the revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in an effort to make more reasoned arguments about proportionality. Greater application of AI. The cost of technology is less than half of the human reviewer. It is $0.40-$0.50 per document. The ability to review faster and cheaper allows us to get key documents to outside counsel faster so that the lawyers can develop their case strategy.”
