Digital Revolution in Legal

The digital revolution is transforming Legal, mainly by applying technology to invent new tools for law firms to facilitate practice management, document storage, billing, accounting and e-discovery. Recently, Big Data and Analytics were used to better understand written contracts, to generate legal documents based on the user specific situation and to provide predictive service for case management. This revolution is also very often referred as Legal Tech. 

Legal Tech companies are generally startups founded with the purpose of disrupting the traditionally conservative legal market. According to TechCrunch (access the article) "legal technology is booming, with companies attempting to disrupt the legal space at every level and from every angle" and Forbes noted in February 2015 that there were “hundreds of legal startups popping up all over the US and Europe”.
