The Risks of AI for Law Firms and Their Business Clients

by David P. Atkins and Marcy Tench Stovall
Hartford Business Journal

Pullman & Comley Professional Liability attorneys David P. Atkins and Marcy Tench Stovall co-authored an article for the Hartford Business Journal on attorneys' use of generative artificial intelligence (AI), and outlining some of the current risks and limitations to keep in mind.

Because the tools are still relatively new and involve still-developing technology, risks related to the use of generative AI can include inaccurate and unreliable results, attorney-client confidentiality and infringement.

In addition, they write, “even if the response to a generative AI query can provide a starting place for research, or provide ideas for the drafting of certain kinds of litigation or transactional documents, the proper use of any such results will require application of the type of lawyerly analysis and judgment that clients commonly expect from their lawyers."
