22 Jun More Change is Needed
Altman Weil recently published its annual report on Law Firms in Transition. The takeaway: law firms are changing, but not fast enough. The report analyzes a recent survey Altman Weil conducted of nearly 800 of the U.S.’s largest law firms. Its findings starkly highlight the challenges faced by traditional law firms. It’s clear many are failing to deliver what clients need from their lawyer. Law firms must change their business model to be more client-focused. Yet resistance to change dominates most big law firms. Clients need practical and efficient solutions (i.e. technology-driven) to their problems. Seems simple.
