Episode 6: D. Casey Flaherty on Legal Tech Competency, Legal Ops and Client Driven Change
For Episode 6, we sat down with D. Casey Flaherty at the Legal Tech conference in New York City.
Casey talked about a few things: how many lawyers struggle to master everyday technology, his experience as corporate counsel and the efforts he took in that role to improve the way company lawyers did their jobs. But, a good chunk of the conversation focused on Casey’s belief that inefficiencies in legal service delivery will not change until clients demand change.
Casey is a legal operations consultant and the founder of Procertas, a legal tech assessment and training tool that helps lawyers and their staff master the basic technology tools they use every day such as Word, Excel and the like.
Prior to launching Procertas and his legal ops consulting practice, Casey was corporate counsel for Kia Motors and got his start as a law firm associate with Holland and Knight.
Casey is also an excellent and prolific writer. He writes frequently for 3 Geeks and a Law Blog and is the author of “Unless you Ask” A Guide for Law Departments to Get More from External Relationships.
