The CoVid pandemic has further demonstrated that technology, while not a panacea, is the most important tool available to lawyers to bring access to justice to more people who desperately need it. Attorneys can develop systems that divide their practices into two buckets: Legal work that must be performed by counsel and ancillary services outside the definition of the practice of law. The former can be streamlined by more effcient communication between lawyer and client. The latter can often be automated.
For example, lawyers are often hired to form corporations. Many of the tasks involved - filing a Certificate of Incorporation, hiring a registered agent, issuing meeting notices - do not require attorney-intervention. OlyverApp provides users with a process to handle those matters themselves. However, drafting bylaws, while routine, constitutes the practice of law and should be performed by a lawyer. OlyverApp gathers the information counsel needs to provide that service and sends it to the attorney, saving time and money on unnecessary consultation.
