Legal Operations & Technology Services

Digital transformation is transforming the legal department. Don't miss the boat!

The demands of legislation on companies are constantly increasing worldwide – and the demands on legal departments are rising accordingly. Three effects can be seen as the cause: ever more and ever more detailed regulation meets ever greater budget pressure with ever greater opportunities for digitization.

At the same time, technological progress, the opening up of new markets and the megatrend of digitalization mean that the legally relevant steps within a company are becoming increasingly complex and extensive, making them more difficult to take into account. Taken in isolation, this development is not particularly surprising. All the more remarkable, however, is the often significant discrepancy between the workload and the available human resources. The diagnosis is therefore: cost-cutting targets and staff reductions demand greater efficiency from legal departments – while at the same time maintaining a continuously high quality of work. A Gordian knot – but we at KPMG Law can help you cut it.

The essential prerequisite for this: in order to improve the effectiveness of the legal department, the existing tasks must first be subjected to a review. So-called LegalTech solutions – legal solution approaches on a digital basis – can then help automate certain activities. The result: simple processes are taken care of by the algorithm – so you are relieved and gain time and capacity to deal with complex legal issues.

KPMG Law is the market leader in LegalTech and combines legal and technological expertise in a multidisciplinary consulting approach. In this way, we can guide you on your way to an efficient and technology-supported legal department.
