Why are law firms struggling to collaborate effectively across all people and departments? The answer may lie in a firm’s technological solutions and processes.
According to David Kamien, collaboration is often a challenge for law firms because information is not widely — and quickly — accessible. Luckily, Mind-Alliance Systems has a solution that uses machine learning and AI technology to filter news and alerts and pull up relevant information to further knowledge sharing. Their system also offers smart folders with various filters, which is an accessible tool that holds everything a firm knows (and wants to know) about a client. What other developments can help your firm communicate, collaborate, and drive the bottom line?

David discusses how knowledge sharing is beneficial to firms, the importance of analyzing data to identify growth potential, and the key roles your firm might be missing.
