The timelines for digital transformation were pushed forward significantly in the legal industry due to COVID-19. With court delays and depositions on hold no longer being an option long-term, many firms are now turning to remote and digital means to pursue these proceedings. With the shift to more digital work comes a plethora of questions and concerns, but the options for holding these legal proceedings and generating admissible transcripts from them have been proven to work.

To appease and educate the legal community around new technologies available to them to help with the current climate and its long-term effects, Verbit’s legal team hosted the event, Integrating Digital Reporters Into Your Business, on February 23rd. It focused on how to form a strategy that incorporates more digital elements as a complement to the work agencies and firms are already taking on.
