Legal Delivery Is Becoming Digitized. What Does That Mean?

The features of digitized legal providers are becoming well-defined– they are customer centric, tech and process enabled, agile, diverse, accessible to clients in real-time, intelligent, globally branded, scalable, multi-disciplinary, and enterprise focused.
