Stephanie Loughner, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Employment Group, recently joined a virtual roundtable discussion with Law Week Colorado about how law firms have implemented new tech over the last year to address security, compliance, and other client needs during the remote work of the pandemic.
She was joined by Jason Adaska, the Director of Software Development & Innovation Lab at Holland & Hart, and Chad Ergun, the Chief Information Officer at Davis Graham & Stubbs.
The article, Colorado Firms on New Tech Use in the Pandemic, was published in the December 20 edition of Law Week Colorado. An excerpt from the article is below.
Law firms had to rethink processes and technology use at all levels when the COVID-19 Pandemic shuttered in-person activity in the state back in March 2020.
While firms scrambled to get employees set up with the technology to work remotely, another technological hurdle was looming close behind: security. Firms needed to address security concerns swiftly while keeping work-from-home tech in place during the first few months of the pandemic.
Later on though, the drive for new tech started coming in from the client end, as client billing systems started using AI to scan through invoices and bills for keywords and trends to identify issues. Clients also started pushing for threat detection with greater levels of sophistication from law firms to address the possibility of cybersecurity breaches.
During the roundtable interview, Loughner said, “…That’s why it’s important to invest in some of the financial software. As our clients get more sophisticated with their data and their wants and needs for financial data, we don’t have to send somebody to manually review it. It’s something our upgraded software should be able to calculate faster, quicker, better and allow us to then make decisions based upon that financial model.”
