How is innovation changing corporate practice areas?
Clients can access their records, it's about having cloud-based technology rather than licenses for this and that. I think we will continue to see this level of change for a few years. Everybody is in the midst of change right now in corporate groups.
How are transactional practice areas adopting technology for document automation and virtual closing lists?
Banking and finance are adopting document automation and virtual closing lists and checklists. It's unbelievable when they start to wrap their minds around things that we used to do in corporations with automation. Its particularly effective where they have similar large clients, and using templates. Especially in real estate with things like condo closings, real estate transactions, anything that can be automated is changing the game.
What is the value of using corporate databases in other practice areas?
Banking and finance is doing things for the firm's corporate clients. The information is already there. So just finding new ways to incorporate their documents.
