With sixteen offices and over 750 attorneys on staff, it’s no wonder that this firm is the 44th seat on the AmLaw 200 list. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (WSGR) is a well know name in Silicon Valley, and for good reason; They are known to use the latest and greatest legal tech tools. Unfortunately, even when a firm like this has these tools at their disposal that does not mean that they will be adopted or used. WSGR’s statement below demonstrates the lengths a firm like this will go to promote the adoption of new technologies.
TLDR: WSGR is motivating its staff with $100k of travel awards to promote legal tech and tools to its attorneys; Whichever groups meet their adoption goals get a cut of the total prize.
This problem with slow adoption is across the board, from solo/duo’s all the way up to the world’s top law firms. This slow to adopt mentality stems more from law practice and precedence than it does from a disdain for technology. Attorneys were one of the fastest groups of professionals to adopt the mobile phone, demonstrating that it is more about how a technology can meet their needs than improve firm efficiency.
