Digital investigations and eDiscovery have undergone drastic changes in the past decade because of rising data volumes and new and emerging data sources from cloud and mobile application technologies. In fact, the use of technology-assisted review has become accepted standard procedure for many law firms, especially in high-stakes litigation. The recent emergence of generative artificial intelligence (gen-AI) is starting to also have an impact on the eDiscovery process and changing the way lawyers manage litigation even further.

In this interview on the Reinventing Professionals podcast, Chantelle Jalland speaks with legal analyst Ari Kaplan, of Ari Kaplan Advisors, to examine how this high-tech revolution is making the practice of law more cost-effective and efficient.

Among the topics discussed are:

  • How technology can help meet clients’ demands and its effect on billable hours
  • The importance of finding the right combination of technology tools
  • ChatGPT and its correct use in litigation
  • The value of using technology, even in small legal matters
  • Why AI tools will not replace talented lawyers
