This is a subject that’s close to our hearts at Miso – after all, the creation of Miso came from our founder Peter Milligan’s personal struggle to find a digital solution that helped him both organise his thinking, and structure information around an ‘issue’ structure – a challenge universal to the litigation process.                                                                                                                                                       

That’s why when it came to writing our first white paper, diving deep into the ways in which technology is being used by litigators was an obvious topic for us to hone in on.

Here are some of the areas we discuss…

  • Face to face meetings have been replaced by virtual consultations.
  • Lawyers are collaborating with each other and clients through online meetings, file sharing and cloud-based project management. 
  • Home-working is becoming a permanent part of the litigation landscape
  • Virtual court hearings have become commonplace, with the use of e-bundles and file sharing.
  • Research isn’t as time consuming as before, thanks to online records and computer generated evidence.
  • Paper is becoming a thing of the past, meaning firms are not only saving money but becoming more sustainable too.
  • Client hubs and chatbots instead of phone calls and in-person meetings.

We also share our thoughts on upcoming technology trends for the future of litigation, and the potential benefits (and challenges) of these.

Some of the areas we look at include…

  • How proceedings are serviced is changing, email, Instagram and NFTs anyone? 
  • How the rise of crypto-currency is gradually becoming recognised by courts as a way of resolve. 
  • How Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality aren’t just for movies and games.
  • How the future of technology needs to be all-inclusive.
  • How it’s perfectly normal to feel daunted by technology taking over, but by having the right litigation management system in place, you’ll be just fine!
