Weekend readings – Law firms: a less guilded future

with 4 comments

I would very much recommend you to take a moment to read an excellent piece published on the latest issue of The Economist.  (Thanks to Mark English for calling our attention to it)

At a moment where some are reporting on the pick up on profits and revenues at Big Law, this article from The Economist contains a very insightful analysis of the many challenges that lie ahead for the legal profession, not all of which are cyclical. I tend to agree with a lot of what’s said there (except, maybe, for that last phrase on how “a firm’s only real asset are its partners”…).

And, although I’m sure most of you have at least heard about it, those interested on further readings on the future of the legal profession should definetely read Susskind’s brilliant book The End of Lawyers.
