Round table discussion on changing law firm business structures
At the most recent Gazette roundtable, attended by Partner Corinne Staves, mergers, finance, technology and succession planning were high on the agenda. Also discussed were changing law firm business structures.
Corinne's view, which can be read along with those of other attendees, by clicking on this link, was ‘Like it or not, the law firm model is going to change.... We’re not just going to have associates and partners. We’re going to have project managers, we’re going to have technicians, we’re going to have people who take information that computers have produced and turn that into advice. Then we’re going to have other people who interpret it and deliver it to clients. We’re going to have a very different form of delivery of legal services.'
