There is no doubt that the experience of recent months has changed the landscape of most industries and professions.
Moreover, it’s likely that the current change caused is permanent.
On the topic of permanent change, the legal world is inherently one which has been known to be traditional and conventional. However, even this solid, reliable profession has had to adapt.
Whilst the gravitas of the legal profession remains firmly intact, the industry has had no choice other than to move with the quickly changing times. However, rather than this having adverse effects, the fact is, this change exercise has proved beneficial.
The enforced distancing of COVID-19 has brought with it many advantages for business. For example, law firms have evolved positively during these trying times. More specifically, they have embraced technology which has had a significant impact on the way in which they do business.
For instance, saving solicitors’ practices great amounts of time, sharing documentation electronically is now commonplace.
Although legal companies still need to be watchful of confidentiality, it has been impossible to meet in person.
As a result, digital practices and processes have been adapted and honed accordingly, in order that all regulations and industry guidance are still fully followed.
As the whole of the population slowed to a near standstill in lockdown, it has been possible to take advantage of the opportunity to review standard processes to ensure full regulatory compliance whilst socially distancing.
Remote working by staff might have initially suggested greater risks to data security, but simple processes put into place have ensured the seamless transition from face to face client contact to digital.
All carried out with no compromise whatsoever to the quality of service.
Whilst no one could ever have predicted the rapid changes, systems have surprisingly easily evolved.
Court hearings sometimes lengthy and drawn out are now being conducted via video.
Another major plus created by the necessary changes is the saving on both time and money with regard to travel and face to face meetings.
Equally, time poor clients have benefitted too, as video conferencing has opened up a totally new concept for those seeking legal advice. For example, anyone seeking specialist legal services is now able to access the best teams from anywhere in the country, or even the world, at the touch of a button.
Adapt to Better Times
The digital transition of the more traditional legal world has meant that those law firms who have adapted are in a great position to move forward.
Evolving in this way has ensured that clients are still guaranteed the confidential, efficient and professional services of pre-COVID times.
However, these same services are now more flexible, faster paced and more readily able to fit in with the clients’ needs.
