Nalytics recently carried out two pieces of market research within the legal sector.


The first was based on in-depth telephone interviews with heads of practices specialising in contract analysis, disclosure of evidence in litigation work, and due diligence – e.g. in Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) – across the country.  The focus of the interviews was data search and discovery.


The second took the form of an online survey focusing upon AI in legal firms, with special emphasis on attitudes, existing adoption, usefulness and future potential.


The findings from both have been collated into a White Paper - 'Optimal Search & Discovery: All About AI, or Having the Right Tools for Each Task?'


David Rivett, Nalytics COO said,


“We found the results from both exercises fascinating, which is why we’re sharing the highlights with you via this White Paper.”


"The market research covered in the White Paper revealed that people experience a multitude of challenges in their search and discovery activities.  Some challenges are mundane and easily spotted– such as data being stored in multiple locations and sources - others can be as elusive and frustrating as chasing shadows. The findings from the online AI survey were also thought-provoking, with some interesting responses from law firms.”
