Troutman Pepper Forms Task Force to Advance Generative AI in the Practice of Law

May 10 2023

NEW YORK – Few technologies have impacted the world and workplace as rapidly as generative artificial intelligence (AI). The global generative AI market is expected to reach $42.6 billion in 2023.[1]

As with most emerging technologies, AI brings both promise and a measure of risk. To help the firm and its clients successfully but safely use these disruptive tools and technologies, Troutman Pepper announced today the formation of its Generative AI Task Force. The Task Force is a logical extension of Troutman Pepper’s multifaceted efforts in the AI space and will unify and amplify the firm’s existing talents and experience using AI and advising clients seeking to do so.

“Troutman Pepper has always been on the leading edge of these issues. To capitalize on the work we’re already doing and the broad legal expertise we have in the AI space, we’re thrilled to officially launch our Generative AI Task Force. The team is up to date on the legal issues rife in the implementation of generative AI across industry sectors and shares news across practices of our own research and development that delivers client value,” said Will Gaus, Troutman Pepper’s chief innovation officer and Task Force lead. “We will continue to welcome and actively pursue new opportunities to expand—with appropriate care and due diligence—the use of AI in our firm and in the profession of law.”

The Generative AI Task Force combines the skills and services of attorneys and professionals from across the firm with expertise in technology, data analytics, business litigation, privacy, information security, compliance, client service, innovation, eDiscovery, legal ethics, and more. Many of the Task Force members have already developed, tested, piloted, thoroughly vetted, and implemented custom internal and client-facing AI solutions. Specifically, the Task Force is focused on:

Troutman Pepper clients and the firm will continue to benefit from the expertise of Task Force contributors’ prior and ongoing hands-on AI experience, including:
