‘When I started the Canadian Legal Innovation Forum in 2018, the core premise was to map Canada’s legal innovation landscape and its role in driving results: for lawyers, the businesses they work alongside and society as a whole.
One objective stemming from this core premise was to help focus minds on how the legal ecosystem structure is evolving. It is one that is being shaped by external economic drivers, a rapidly changing client base with evolving expectations of value and a more competitive landscape for providers of legal services to contend with. As the world adjusts to a new era of disruption, the need for the legal sector to deliver more effective results through innovative approaches is paramount.
This article will explore the evolving drivers (and attendant risks) in the Canadian litigation landscape and what it means for legal departments, law firms and their third party legal sector service providers.’
