Tanenbaum Keale LLP Chief Technologist Kenneth E. Jones was recently published by Thomson Reuters on how app development platforms can offer significant advantages for law firms.

Jones touches on three benefits development has – rapid builds, customization and integration – over purchasing off-the-shelf software.

“If a corporate lawyer working on a licensing contract, for example, can share document revisions and associated data within the same “working container” as a company’s business and product development teams, that’s a huge win,” Jones writes. “And that’s exactly what the entities pushing for more acceptance of app development platforms are seeking to accomplish.”

In the next part of his blog series, Jones will take a deeper dive into the legal operations function and some of the use cases best served via this approach.
