Four Areas of Legal Ripe for Disruption by Smart Startups | Law Technology Today
Process Automation: Like Bessemer Venture Partners portfolio companies Clio and Anaqua, automation removes tasks that are not core to the law but have taken up an increasing amount of lawyer’s time in recent years. Clio automates the manual processes around billing, calendaring, and task management—lawyers need tools just like other professionals to ensure they can focus on their core work and not be distracted by administrative tasks. Anaqua, an intellectual property asset management tool, automates the manual processes around protecting and managing IP portfolios. In both cases, before using automated products, law firms used jury-rigged Excel and Word, but found hundreds of hours of their time dedicated to troubleshooting. We believe lawyers should focus on what they do best and automate everything else.

Legal Services and the Unauthorized Practice of Law: No Bright Line Here | Lawyerist
Disruptive, technology-based legal delivery services clearly have a place in what has been an otherwise locked-down law practice tradition. Laws and regulations that have been promulgated to provide consumer protection are unfortunately necessary to protect the many from the few. But they were not written with the many variations of legal service providers currently available in mind. Rather than determining if a legal delivery system violates UPL rules, what must evolve are new definitions of the types of legal services that should be regulated by new standards. Without that, this debate will play out in the courts and bar associations across the country to no one’s advantage, least of all LegalZoom.

Read the article for quotes illustrating both sides of the debate. See also Suit Challenges N.Y. Prohibition of Non-Lawyer Firm Ownership (NYLJ, 20 May 2011)
