The Legal Industry has Two Camps: Half Empty & Half Full.
- Law School enrollment down. Law School costs still high. Student debt even higher.
Law grad unemployment is low.
- Law firm revenue is flat or declining. Law firms are demoting & de-equitzing partners while laying off associates or staff. Margins are shrinking and clients are demanding lower rates or going to more competitively priced firms.
- Clients are using new legal service providers; new competitors. Some LPOs are eating law firm’s lunches. Notable law firms are imploding or closing their doors.
- Innovation is driving law schools to produce a better lawyer. Some law firms are making the necessary changes in business models and leadership to remain nimble, innovative and prepared for continual change.
- Clients are looking for law firms and their leaders who are responding to the New Normal with enthusiasm, creativity & hope in the new economy.
