“We’re expecting to see change across the board,” says Osborne Clarke digital revolution knowledge lawyer Catherine Hammon.

Osborne Clarke’s core sector specialisms are at the heart of this narrative. Think electric and driverless cars in energy and transport, blockchain and 3D printing possibilities in real estate, and fintech in financial services.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a hot commercial awareness topic right now, but experience suggests the pace of change on the ground can be slower than anticipated. Sometimes the hype surrounding innovative solutions can be overpowering, often obscuring the time it takes for a product to go from initial concept to commercial reality. “That’s when we end up with ‘AI winters’”, explains Hammon. To avoid disillusion, “we need to be careful to manage expectations, to maintain the momentum while keep the hype under control.”
