MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates innovation activities in Norwegian corporate law firms. The research is focused on law firms as knowledge intensive business services. Innovation in law firms is at a crossroads. Many law firms are now considering taking advantage of legal tech and implementing more efforts in order to digitalize more of how everyday work is done. This thesis uncovers the sporadic use of legal tech for more limited tasks traditionally involving document production and processing of information. Innovation activities in Norwegian corporate law firms were found to be ad-hoc with no formal R&D structure. There was found to be a high presence of external actors providing technology and also a variety of triggers for innovation and the development of new services. Structured interviews with profiled attorneys and experts on innovation in Norwegian corporate law firms were used as a basis for the analyzis.
