Change in the legal industry is all around us. I point to two recent articles. The first, written by Matthew Grace, Senior Editor, The Lawyers Weekly, in the In House Counsel supplement. Matthew explains how the role of In House Counsel is evolving. He suggests that In House Lawyers get up to speed with Business Development-now that’s change. The other article was written by Jordan Furlong, Edge International, in the October 25 issue of The Lawyers Weekly. He talks about how we are approaching the dawn of ABS (Alternative Business Structures), in Canada. If that isn’t change, I don’t know what is.
It’s an exciting time to be a lawyer and especially if you are running a law firm. More than ever there are opportunities to really stand out from your competition. Are you up for the challenge?
