Are you ready to face up to your own negative self?" In this episode I am interviewing Alistair Maiden Alistair is a former lawyer turned legal technologist and founder of Syke, a legal technology company. We discuss:
Leaving practice to launch a legal tech company.
Technology and innovation in the legal profession.
Why legal tech frees up lawyers to do what they are trained to do.
Thoughts for lawyers and corporate legal teams about adoption of legal tech.
Why law firms are slower to adopt legal technologies.
