The need for practical guidance
The working environment for legal professionals is constantly evolving, and quick adaptability is crucial to maintaining and growing a client base while remaining productive and efficient. Key trends that continue to transform the way that legal professionals access and use information include technology, mobility and online research.
Chantelle Maree, Practical Guidance Manager at LexisNexis South Africa says: “South African firms are investing more aggressively in technology that enables remote working and mobile research, coupled with quick access to reliable legal commentary and content.
“For legal professionals who might not have the time and resources to sift through reams of information, expert information and practical aids that can be accessed easily on devices such as tablets and smartphones are now an essential requirement,” she says.
