An outcome because of the changes we’ve seen over the last 12 months is the number of people working from home and how that has increased exponentially. We are now seeing most of the UK’s office-based employees working remotely, increasing from just under 6% before the Covid-19 pandemic. A recent 2021 Cushman and Wakefield survey shows that between 60-80% of legal professionals will prefer to continue working remotely, post-pandemic.

This gives rise to certain implications including communication, business resiliency, cybersecurity, and employee collaboration – challenges that need to be addressed to avoid providing substandard service to clients and putting key stakeholders at risk.

This is where cloud computing comes in. It’s currently experiencing exponential growth across the Legal sector. In all its varieties, whether this is public, private or hybrid provision models, this shift will see a trillion pounds worth of annual spending thought to be affected by the shift to cloud globally by 2022.

Despite a vast shift of focus from the on-premises provision of services to online, many legal firms are still lingering over their commitment to programmes that would see them powering the business benefits.

Join Maintel’s CTO Dan Davies alongside other senior legal peers and decision-makers during this interactive 90-minute virtual boardroom. Uncover how the cloud can enable faster digital workplace changes, how to adapt your business’s communications strategy to securely accommodate hybrid working and secure connectivity transformation strategies to be implemented, as well as how your firm can anticipate and overcome potential challenges on the horizon.
