The practice of law is constantly evolving. As firms look to the future, they must embrace new ideas that may not have been a part of their previous focus. One idea that has gained in popularity is called “law new.” It refers to a variety of strategies that allow lawyers to offer their services in new ways. This can include working with clients outside the traditional legal realm, or using new technologies to improve the speed and efficiency of their work.
It’s a small part of the overall practice of law, but this type of strategy is one that every firm should consider exploring. By embracing this concept, they can tap into a new source of income and help their clients in ways that they couldn’t before.
