For many legal businesses, automation may feel like a harder-said-than-done proposition. Automating a large number of repetitive tasks using rules is the best option. This lets attorneys spend more time on client-facing work and strategic activities which generate revenues.

The advantages of automatizing legal practices are clear – allowing attorneys to do what they were trained to do offering a better client experience while reducing the risk of human error. However, what may not be so obvious is the cost savings which can also be achieved.

In a world where the cost of staffing and overheads are a constant challenge, automating one process may mean that you don’t have to hire additional legal team members. This could aid a small or solo firm remain competitive on the same budget as larger firms.

An excellent example is document automation. Legal teams can create templates for recurring documents such as NDAs, employment documents, or privacy compliance documents. Instead of sitting for hours in meetings and sending documents back and forth, they could create and save templates. Once a template has been set up, staff can then self-serve and produce the document without the need for a lawyer to be involved, resulting in quicker turnaround times for clients and less revisions for legal teams.

Automating legal workflows can provide legal professionals with the tools they need to succeed and increase efficiency. If you’re unsure of where to begin, you can keep a daily log for a week. This will help you identify tasks that can be automated. After that, look into technology tools that could help alleviate the burden of these straight from the source tasks and implement them slowly so as not to disrupt your day-to-day work.
