Are clients asking your firm to be more efficient, lower fees or freeze rates, accept alternative billing arrangements or abandon the billable hour?  

How would your firm respond if a significant client demanded that your firm implement quality controls or computerize litigation functions such as discovery document review? 

Does your firm have quality control processes in place to find and reduce errors in attorney-work product and billing, eliminate wasted effort or avoid repeatedly solving the same legal problem? 

Is your firm losing market share to non-law firm service provider, legal process outsourcer, online legal advisors or self-help products?

What is the impact of the District Court opinion holding that computer-assisted discovery document review is an acceptable substitute for manual review of documents?    

As the dust begins to settle on the post-Recession economy, certain trends are emerging in the marketplace for legal services:  

  • Demand for legal services remains weak  
  • Excess capacity of legal talent  
  • Proliferation and rapid growth of non-law firm vendors pulling business away from law firms  
  • Significant decline in spending on legal services  
  • Alternative billing models replacing traditional billable hours, perhaps permanently
  • Law firm growth strategies increasingly rely on lateral hiring
  • Cost and value calculations are replacing client loyalty
  • Advances in technology and software capable of mechanizing many legal functions How might these trends affect your practice?
