FOREWORD, FRANCESCO GIANNI

Francesco Gianni discusses how WSG makes technology and innovation a cornerstone of its core service objectives.

STATE OF PLAY

Following a comprehensive survey of in-house counsel from across Europe, GC looks at the state of technology innovation at in-house teams and the diverse, pragmatic perspectives offered by leading general counsel.

POTENTIAL INTELLIGENCE

GC examines the current state of artificial intelligence in the legal world: what has been done, what might still be waiting around the corner, and whether an industry ripe for disruption could soon be faced with wholesale change.

KEEPING YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE...

GC takes a look at the growing phenomenon of law firm legal tech innovation labs.


EMERGING TECHNOLOGY: BLOCKCHAIN

The emergence of blockchain technology has the potential to touch every sector of business – and law is no exception. GC examines the potential of blockchain technology and considers just how it could impact the legal profession.

A LOOK AHEAD

GC dives into the long-term outlook for innovation within in-house teams and businesses across Europe, considering the contemporary state of affairs, what could still be achieved, and what progress may mean for the profession as a whole.



DATA ANALYSIS


PART ONE: BACKING FROM THE BUSINESS

With in-house teams at varying stages of the innovation journey, GC looks at the factors most influential for those leading the way in implementing technological solutions within their departments.


PART TWO: BIG BUDGET, BIG FUTURE

With the perception being that implementing innovative technological solutions is an expensive endeavour, the wildly differing budgets committed to it across Europe suggests that there may be more than one way to get in on the hype.

PART THREE: TRICKLE-DOWN INNOVATION - REDEFINING THE FIRM-GC RELATIONSHIP

An already evolving relationship between in-house and external counsel is being changed even further by the pressure to innovate, and to do so cheaply, according to those surveyed for this report.

PART FOUR: POSITIVE DISRUPTION

Disruption has long been promised to the legal profession. GC asked in-house counsel when this might come, what form it may take and what this means for the future of legal advice.
