What is a Chief Innovation Officer? 10 years ago, this title didn’t exist, and at most firms big and small, it STILL doesn’t exist. I ask this question to Ali Shahidi, the Chief Innovation and Client Solutions Officer at AmLaw 100 law firm Sheppard Mullin.

Ali is an experienced and trusted innovation expert and technologist. He has decades of experience in legal. Combined that with his engineering background, he has world-class perspective on where the industry is going with respect to technology and automation.

In this episode, we talk about what he does in his role, what problems he is looking to solve for his firm, and where law firms have gone wrong in the past.
