This resource originated as a primary-source appendix for presentations on Generative AI we began delivering in December 2022. We are still going (700 slides and counting). We offer introductory presentations for larger audiences still getting up to speed. We partner with law firms on CLEs that address the many legal and regulatory considerations that add to complexity and impact strategy. We lead high-level conversations among informed stakeholders re real-world use cases. Feel free to reach out.

As the presentation has grown, so has the appendix, to the point where we’ve added both supplemental material (that is not in the presentation) and maintained historical materials (fallen out of the presentation given how quickly the topic moves). The resource is comprehensive in-so-far as it contains a primary source for every slide in the presentation. But we think a truly comprehensive resource that encompasses the vast and rapidly evolving subject of Generative AI would be impossible. We’re giving you a lot. But we would never pretend to be offering everything. Though if you see a glaring hole, feel free to reach out. We’re always looking to make this resource more valuable.

This is all completely free.

Yet we are consistently asked how LexFusion makes money. If you are not paying for the product, you are the product has become common sense. Fair enough.

We accelerate legal innovation. LexFusion curates promising legal innovation companies. We invest. They also pay us. We support strategy, product, sales, marketing, events, etc. For example, Macro joined LexFusion a year before their $9.3m seed round, led by Andreesen Horowitz. Similarly, Casetext joined LexFusion two years before their $650m cash acquisition by Thomson Reuters. While the primary credit always belongs to the founders and their teams (we identify and then accelerate winners), they, like our other members, will enthusiastically confirm that LexFusion played a material role in rapidly advancing their products and business.

Much of our value to our legal-innovation clients is premised on our unparalleled market listening. We frequently provide free presentations and consultations, absent any sales agenda, to law departments and law firms to foster conversations that augment our market insights. This is where the confusion sets in. Our customers (law depts/firms) are distinct from our clients (legal innovation companies). Because our customers don’t pay us, they want to know where the money comes from.

We regularly meet with ~500 law departments and ~300 law firms. LexFusion is, ultimately but not directly, compensated based on the value we derive from these interactions. For our business to be sustainable, the exchange of value must merit their scarce time over repeat interactions—hence the free content and consults. If you know us, you probably stopped reading already. If you don’t know us, we hope the depth of this free content and some testimonials from our friends are sufficient to establish are bona fides.

To the extent you are interested in an even deeper dive, Bill Henderson wrote a wonderful longform piece on our business model, which we followed up with an even longer piece on the centrality of trust to the LexFusion value proposition. We have yet to perfect our elevator pitch. But we do our best to always be transparent. Without building and maintaining trust, our business model crumbles. Our legal-innovation clients will cycle through—inherent in our model. Our sole enduring asset is our relationships with our customers. We are people centric, and live our motto “better together!”

The leaked pre-final text of the EU AI Act raises concerns about its enforcement mechanisms. While the EU aims to regulate AI models based on risk categories, enforcing regulations on high-risk algorithms may be challenging. The establishment of an AI Office and consistency in enforcement across member states are potential challenges. Businesses must plan for compliance, categorize their AI systems, and address bias and fairness. The EU AI Act will apply to any business with AI models affecting EU citizens, and noncompliance may result in fines. Risk management is at the core of the regulation, ensuring its relevance despite evolving technology.

Generative AI poses threats to attorney-client privilege, particularly in terms of confidentiality and privilege risks. Public-facing models and client chatbots carry the risk of repeating confidential information to different users, potentially compromising privilege. While AI developers offer enterprise models to wall off data, there are still concerns about the waiver of privilege within a firm. Legal technology vendors need to be vetted to ensure data segregation and confidentiality safeguards.

The training of advanced AI models requires significant energy consumption and contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. Altman suggests that solutions like nuclear fusion and affordable solar energy can help meet the growing energy demand of AI. While Altman previously made cataclysmic claims about AI, he now believes that AI will have a lesser impact on the world and jobs than previously thought. He still anticipates the development of artificial general intelligence (AGI) in the near future but is less concerned about its disruptive effects.

Standard safety training may not be enough to fully secure AI systems from hidden, deceptive behaviors.

The following strategies can you help you better understand your employees’ perspectives. Start by creating audience personas that map to key employee segments in your company. Then interview individual employees in each segment to get a sample perspective on typical mindsets, and tailor your communication to match their mood. It’s also important to be as transparent as possible. While you may need to keep some facts private during a transition, the general rule is that the more informed your people are, the more they’ll be able to deal with discomfort. So, learn about your team’s specific fears, and acknowledge them openly. And make sure individuals at all levels feel included. A transformation won’t succeed without broad involvement.
