Shawn Swearingen Contributes to ‘State of Generative AI in Legal’ Survey Report

PERSUIT published a survey, titled “State of Generative AI in Legal: A Survey Report of Generative AI Maturity Across Law Firms,” which delves into the state of generative AI and how it’s being perceived, adopted and leveraged. The survey spans an array of law firms and offers a panoramic view across adoption, utilization, talent, expertise, strategy and outlook related to GenAI across the full spectrum of law firms. Faegre Drinker Chief Innovation Officer Shawn Swearingen collaborated with PURSUIT during the survey.

“Most firms are still very much in the experimentation, R&D, and piloting stage. The reality is that the actual impact of generative AI technology will not be fully realized or understood in the next 6-12 months. It will take some more usage and adoption in real-life scenarios before firms can accurately measure the impact of this technology on both services and pricing. The crucial work now is to ensure that firms have a process and program in place to be able to accurately capture, measure, analyze, and report on the impact of GenAI.” Swearingen is quoted as noting in the survey.

She also highlights “As firms adopt generative AI, ethical considerations and client needs should guide us. Proactive measures, including data privacy safeguards and bias mitigation, are essential. By balancing ethical deployment, continuous education and client-centricity, firms can navigate the AI landscape and fully harness its potential with integrity and innovation.”
