In the face of the looming AI revolution, law firms are grappling with the potential impact on their bottom line. As AI-powered tools become more sophisticated, they threaten to cannibalize billable hours and erode profit margins. A recent study by AI consultant Toby Brown revealed that the application of AI in legal practice could lead to a 13%revenue decline and a 7% cut in profit margins. This grim outlook has left many law firms wondering how to navigate this new landscape.

At DataPlus we are using AI to help law firms find new business opportunities and counter the effects of AI on their bottom line. Rather than focusing on efficiency gains that could ultimately hurt revenue, DataPlus is leveraging AI to help lawyers, CMOs, and BD teams grow demand for their services.

However, DataPlus recognizes that the key to success lies in using AI to win new business and expand market share. By focusing on client acquisition and identifying new matters, DataPlus is helping law firms stay ahead of the curve and maintain their competitive edge.

One of the key advantages of DataPlus is its ability to identify trends and clients that may drive demand for legal services.

In addition to identifying business opportunities, DataPlus can also help attorneys tailor their pitch talking points to better resonate with their prospective clients to stand out in a crowded market.

By partnering with startups like DataPlus, law firms can leverage the power of AI to unlock new business opportunities and stay ahead of the curve.

ChatGPT is the mouth....Not the Brain.....While ChatGPT seems impressive, using it as a research tool for legal business development, research, or competitive intelligence purposes would be unwise. Its lack of a relevant, updated, and nuanced knowledge base and context compromises the accuracy and reliability of its output. For reliable, professional use cases, it's recommended to use a purpose-built product grounded in industry-trusted data sets that ensure outputs reflect the nuances of the legal world.
