Working as a company lawyer has significantly changed in a short amount of time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, legal departments across Europe were thrust into remote working, where whole businesses had to go digital in just a matter of days or weeks. The profession, which has historically been rather traditional in terms of how legal departments operate, has had to embrace processes and approaches considered unthinkable just a few years ago.
Legal Departments on the Move is a follow-up to our in-depth study Legal Departments in a Digital Era (2020). It provides for a concise and contemporary reference material on digitalisation for legal departments. Due to the immense value that properly digitalised legal departments have to their businesses, the results from this study give a clear insight into how European legal departments have responded to their necessity to digitalise during a time of global uncertainty.
