Mergers & Technology: The importance of one to the other

I wrote an article some time ago which references some of the technology aspects when law firms enter into merger discussions.

Listening to some IT people who’ve experienced the “new” life of merged law firms, I began to appreciate the real horrors of merged life. In some instances, in fact, the different technology platforms was too great an obstacle to overcome and the firms decided against merger.

On the other hand, even in the best of situations, with the best of intentions by all parties, each firm must create a technology integration committee and have those two groups work together to create a harmonious and single-purpose technology that serves the needs of the law firm and the interests of the firm’s clients.
