Nearly three weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic, most lawyers are finally settled into their home workspaces ready to get to work. However, many signs point towards a recession, as the stock market and unemployment rate are breaking with nearly 10 years of positive trends. Firms are starting to have serious questions about how to respond after years of strong demand and getting a fast start on answering them through business intelligence can make all the difference.
