Ms O’Connor – who is the head of online solutions at LexisNexis – outlines the myriad of pain points that practitioners of all stripes are facing, and have faced in a pre-pandemic world, that are impacting upon their businesses and clients. She explains why better integration for one’s drafting processes and tech capabilities is such an urgent priority moving forward, the extent to which legal teams and firms are cognisant of the need to do so, and the dangers in not acting fast.

She also delves into the various transitions that might be required in order to drive a legal practice forward, including but not limited to movement away from billable hours towards fixed fees, broader practical steps that leaders can and should be taking, what a successful practitioner looks like in 2022 and how LexisNexis can help one achieve this.
