Reducing the graft of drafting: Miri Stickland speaks with Clarilis on the upturn of LegalTech

Knowledge Development Lawyer, Miri Stickland, of Forsters' 'trailblazing real estate practice', recently spoke with Clarilis about the dramatic upturn in the use of LegalTech for commercial property transactions.

In the article, entitled 'Reducing the graft of drafting, drives up quality in Real Estate' Miri discusses the increasing role played by technology in innovating working practices across the real estate and legal industries as a result of the pandemic.

“The real estate industry itself has been transformed by technology” Miri points out. “We have smart buildings which know when to turn the air-con and lights on, and we’re starting to see tenants pay their rent in crypto-currency. The way in which we provide legal services must keep pace with this. So, although not all the new technology we’ve seen will stay the distance, there are products that really increase speed and efficiency, and which can be flexed to meet changing demands without compromising on quality. These are the ones that are going to stay the course.”
