ISSUE IN BRIEF

It’s traditional to round off the year on a reasonably upbeat note in this space – and so I thought I’d talk about the rise of artificial intelligence … Briefing will be holding the first of a new series of events in early 2017 – and it’s the latest on the likely role of AI in legal business that’s up for discussion. The new big buzzword? Media-fuelled hype? Well, it’s nearly Christmas – so I’ll entertain that just this once. Still, you may have noticed that even the government has now got around to discussing this much-talked-about topic.

We hear from Eversheds, Keystone Law, Baker & McKenzie, Brodies, Reed Smith, Macfarlanes, and Ogier.

DREAM MACHINES?

Law firms are talking the talk on automation, but it’s augmentation they need to be thinking about as the artificial intelligence options multiply, says MIT fellow and Harvard and Babson College Professor Tom Davenport

PRICE CREAM

The UK client value team at Reed Smith stay consistently close to the complete path of every matter they take in hand. What do they say constitutes a productive, innovative pricing team?

PURCHASE AND SCALE

The chief information officer of McMillan Williams, David Fazakerley, says Thomson Reuters Elite 3E and MatterSphere have given his firm the agility to grow.
