The commotion from the early days of Pandemic is getting settled, and people must now work on the recovery and long term challenges ahead of them. The negativity surrounding the Pandemic is now very clear and so have the opportunities. In the legal domain, the impact created by COVID was negative. People working in that field were in crisis mode, and they are clearly not interested in new products and processes. Legal tech entrepreneurs have also witnessed cultural change along with which they were presented with new opportunities. Brent Arnold, a litigator from Gowling WLG, stated that Pandemic's spell was now broken, and people are embracing technology to help them.

Sean Bernstein, Co-Founder of a firm that deals with helping organizations in their digitization attempts, stated that he no longer explains the clients about hypothetical situations. Instead, he only talks about how he can help them get their hands on documents with no physical access. COVID has forced lawyers and other parties involved in a legal dispute to work through video call apps where the files can be shared more efficiently. The adoption of virtual hearing software has also revamped E-filing efforts, and governments are also onboard with this new system to work efficiently.
