Data has changed the corporate world and is changing the legal profession. The explosion of data in every aspect of business and law has created new risks and new challenges in litigation, corporate governance, regulatory compliance, and in corporate transactions from financing and mergers and acquisitions to simple contract negotiations. At Morgan Lewis, we see the proliferation of data as an opportunity to leverage it to reveal new insight and change the way legal services are delivered.
We focus on leveraging our technology portfolio and deep bench of technologists, engineers, data scientists, and process designers to take full advantage of data to serve our clients. At the same time, we are practicing lawyers and remain our clients’ trusted advisor, with the know-how to guide our clients’ litigation and business strategies and the experience to effectively handle the execution of that strategy, in court and on paper.
Morgan Lewis was a pioneer when the firm established a dedicated “data practice” in 2004, and we have been innovating the practice and delivering thought leadership ever since. From strategy to execution, our lawyers, data scientists, technologists, and process designers treat every aspect of a project as an opportunity to maximize its value to our clients and deliver an effective client experience. Our approach is different. We seamlessly combine our legal, technical, and process know-how of Morgan Lewis’s 2,200 lawyers and legal professionals in more than 30 offices and 15 practice groups with the right process and technology. Morgan Lewis clients get the assurance of working alongside a trusted global firm in the top 10 of the AmLaw 100 with all of the benefits of an innovative alternative legal services provider.
