71% of law professionals prefer working remote over in-person interactions, a Lawyer Monthly article reports. Partly due to the pandemic, litigators no longer have to be restricted to court rooms or their offices. They can work from anywhere, with litigation legal tech at their fingertips. The world of legal tech encompasses AI and smarter software and tools created to assist litigators in leveling up their practice. 

With an extensive collection of legal tech tools available, litigators now have access to a world of intelligent and error-free software. It makes sense to incorporate smarter tools into litigation practice for the host of benefits it can provide. Cost-effective tools, faster and efficient automation, and better time management are just a few of the endless benefits legal tech brings to the litigation table. 


Why Litigators Need Legal Tech 

Although most processes in litigation require hands-on engagement, the world of legal tech offers tools such as online mediation platforms, AI-powered litigation analytics, and more. 

The world of litigation is tiring and long. Discovery processes eat into litigators’ time, and are research-intensive. Litigation departments work in silos, detached from their organizations. Finally, clients and organizations demand early-stage settlements, resolutions that are affordable, and eDiscovery information and data that is proven to win. 

It’s never been easier and better to be a litigator with legal tech, which offers benefits such as:

  • Being a cost-effective way to handle a practice 
  • High-quality litigation services including litigation management, legal ops, and more
  • Allowing lawyers to focus on their litigation matters while legal ops, and research goes on in the background 

There’s a world of legal tech software to fit every need. For litigators in particular, there are litigation-specific legal tech software to assist litigation practice every step of the way.
