Hi all, I worked at a big law firm for 4 yrs, and I’ve been in-house for 5 years. As a side hustle, I built a tool to improve efficiency for certain transactional lawyers and am looking to sell to those law firms. Are partners/law firms these days more willing to leverage technology tools to save time, even though they are sort of incentivized to bill as much as they can under a yearly billables model?
