For many legal businesses, automation may feel like a harder-said-than-done proposition. But, a lot of repetitive, rules-based jobs are ideal for automatization leaving attorneys to concentrate on client-facing tasks and strategic actions that generate revenue.

Legal practice automation offers a variety of benefits. It lets attorneys concentrate on what they’re trained to do, improves customer service, and reduces the chance of human error. However, what may not be so evident is the fact that cost savings are achievable.

In a time of high costs for staffing and other expenses automating a process can help you avoid having to hire more legal team members. This can help a solo or small business remain competitive on the same budget as larger competitors.

Document automation is an excellent example. Legal teams can create templates for documents that are frequently used, such as NDAs, employment papers, or privacy compliance documents. Instead of spending a lot of time in meetings, and e-mailing documents back-and-forth, they can create and save templates. Once a template is developed, employees can use self-service to produce the document, without the need of legal assistance. This results in quicker turnaround times for clients, and less rework on the part of legal teams.

Automating workflows will provide all legal professionals with the tools they need to succeed and improve their efficiency. If you are unsure where to begin, think about keeping a list of your daily tasks for the week and then identify any tasks suitable for automation. Then, search for tools that can help you automate these tasks. Introduce them slowly to ensure that they do not interfere with your daily routine.
