Despite the short history of this new discipline, legal operations has become increasingly popular because it answers key questions about efficiency and effectiveness in legal work: how can a corporate legal department best deploy its team of smart lawyers and its technical resources to advance the organization’s goals, safeguard the business from all sorts of risks and protect corporate values?
Legal teams are increasingly required to deliver their professional service as a business.

Complex workstreams like contract management often require a set of viable strategies to improve internal efficiencies in an organization. Working closely with our clients in this professional context, we found that fine-tuning first the pre-signature and then the post-signature phase of contracting helps better manage the overall process. In June 2022, InvestCEE LegalTech Consultancy released Part I of our new strategy paper series dedicated to improving the pre-signing phase of contracting - the full PDF copy can be accessed in this article.
InvestCEE LegalTech Consultancy in collaboration with Hungarian digital law firm SimpLEGAL issued a practical guide on legal AI to showcase how smart legal technology opens up new opportunities for digitizing legal services. Law firms and in-house legal departments often still lack clarity as to the use cases and basic terminology used in the legal AI domain.
In a digital economy, the value of legal work largely results from core human expertise multiplied by the ability to efficiently “package” legal know-how into technology. Legal analytics tools designed for lawyers allow a shift away from the billable hour and enable workflow data analytics that capture core human expertise.

We’ve condensed our best practice tips in this 5 step plan based on InvestCEE LegalTech Consultancy’s experience with digital contracting processes.
In November 2020, InvestCEE LegalTech Consultancy in collaboration with Hungarian digital law firm SimpLEGAL issued a practical guide on e-signing in Hungary. e-Signature is a key aspect of digital transformation projects, yet we found that there is still lack of clarity as to the legally binding effect of e-signing tools in a given jurisdiction. In the report, we analyzed six locally available, electronic alternatives to traditional ink-on-paper signing and also briefly looked at international, borderless platform solutions. This blog post summarizes the key take-aways and provides free access to the full report.
