    Chris is joined by Rob Booth (General Counsel of the The Crown Estate) for a panel interview with Crafty’s Ben on how legal teams can think strategically about technology. The panel discuss the importance of starting with thorough scoping and thinking about purpose - of the team as well as the tech.

    Rob shares the approach his team has taken at The Crown Estate, particularly on thinking through purpose and also leveraging technology used by the rest of the business. “Information is bigger outside of your organisation than inside it - it’s a ‘no brainer’.” Chris reflects on his experience as an in-house lawyer prior to joining Wavelength and on how a scoping exercise can tease out how perceived priorities for technology can differ widely even amongst one legal team.
