The Interview: Get to know special guest Paul Hoffbrand, certified partner, London based legal systems and tech veteran for the last 35 years. Of course technology has changed a great deal since those days and we’ve all come a long way since the massive popularity of the IBM golf ball typewriter! Mike and Paul have a fascinating discussion about this evolution, through early Microsoft and mobile technology, moving on to the influence and impact of the Cloud in legal tech, and Cloud as today’s technology equaliser. Paul has valuable insights around Cloud’s relevance across firm size and how it allows for new competition models.
