Gartner Report: What Blockchain Smart Contracts Mean for Legal Operations


DiliTrust has worked alongside legal departments for the past 25 years to support them in their digitalization efforts to better equip their legal teams to meet the demands of tomorrow. Helping general counsels, chief legal officers and legal application leaders to achieve best practices in their day to day corporate governance is at the core of our services.

According to Gartner, “By 2022, ratified smart contracts will be in use by more than 25% of global organizations.” However, much confusion abounds about how these software-coded contracts will collide with tech shy legal departments. Gartner further says, “Failing to understand this new legal reality and the “techno-legal” promise of the machine-to-machine automated contract model will put legal teams behind their competitors and ultimately decrease organizational value.”
