Steve Assie, head of the Canadian business for Thomson Reuters, joins the Thomson Reuters Institute’s Insights podcast to discuss some of the key findings from the recently released 2024 State of the Canadian Law Firm Market Report and the 2024 Canadian Government Lawyers Benchmark Report.

Steve and host Bill Josten discuss findings from the report that Canadian lawyers generally view their law firms as successful and have a positive view for potential growth in the market in coming years, but also understand the potential downside they face from a variety of problems that they have yet taken steps to address.

They also discuss the strong rates of early adoption of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) by Canada’s legal community and the potential that such technology could hold for innovation in the market and, in particular, for improving attorney mental health and well-being, a key area of focus for Canadian lawyers.
