When in-house legal operations teams undertake a digital modernization initiative, they usually consider several key factors first, including cost, budget, content security and governance, and ease of adoption. They then tend to focus on addressing their most pressing concerns, such as improving matter tracking and reporting.

Yet forward-looking in-house legal departments must also plan for the future as they develop their modernization strategies. They should ensure that their new solutions include powerful capabilities like advanced analytics and reporting, strategic process automation, and self-service options for clients. When exploring new solutions, compare legal departments should also assess how future-proof — that is, how flexible and adaptable — the available tools are, as well as how frequently their vendors plan to update and invest in them.
