The In-House Lawyer: Revolutionising dispute resolution


Technology is at the heart of the legal sector’s current, well-publicised drive for innovation. With the demands placed on in-house legal teams increasing, and legal budgets trending downwards, the pressure on outside counsel to provide genuine value to their corporate clients has never been greater. GCs are rightly challenging firms in pitches, panel reviews and on an ongoing basis to demonstrate how they will provide that value. While in the past firms might have been able to pay lip-service to innovation, today, demonstrating efficiency through smarter ways of working and optimising resources is critical in winning and retaining clients, while also allowing firms to maintain profitability.

Over the last seven years, Magnum has been used on hundreds of cases worldwide, by 96% of the top 50 international firms and by more than 8,000 legal practitioners, quickly cementing its position as the leading tool for case management, case strategy and paperless proceedings.
