Tanenbaum Keale LLP Chief Technologist Kenneth E. Jones recently authored an article for Corporate Counsel on applying technology to legal matters to support the goals of in-house counsel.

Jones recommends corporate legal departments do not implement technology for technology’s sake, and instead suggests the goals of tech projects should be aligned with the current-day priorities such as optimizing the value of their legal spend and achieving cost certainty. Tanenbaum Keale LLP offers tools and technologies to help with these issues through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Xerdict Group LLC.

“At the end of the day, a law firm’s core mission in the computing sense is that of a service organization whose goal is meeting and servicing client needs, not the technology itself. Focusing on business priorities, improving service and implementing data-based reporting enhances the partnership between outside counsel and their clients allowing each to benefit from everything technology offers,” Jones writes.
