David Lat of Above the Law talks about the similarities and differences between BigLaw and solo and small firms, and talks about changes and opportunities in the legal market. But first, Sam and Aaron talk about the new wine fad: rosé.
David Lat’s Above the Law is “a behind-the-scenes look at the world of law” and Lat himself keeps his finger on the pulse of the legal industry writ large. In this episode, he talks to Sam about the ways in which the business of BigLaw and solo and small-firm practice are similar, different, and changing. As Biglaw changes, many lawyers are going in-house, to boutiques, or trying new business models. There are new challenges, but also new opportunities.
Lat also talks about writing his novel, Supreme Ambitions, and has some advice for other aspiring lawyer-novelists.
