Episode Notes

“A big four accounting firm has bought a small law firm.” —Aaron Street

Greg McLawsen discusses how he went about building an agile, virtual immigration law practice. Sam and Aaron also discuss Deloitte’s unique acquisition of Conduit Law.

Peter Carayiannis, a former podcast guest who discussed what an innovative law firm looks like, merged his small firm, Conduit Law, with accounting giant Deloitte. Aaron and Sam discuss what this merger means for other small firms and what non-attorney ownership means for Conduit Law and the legal industry in general.

Greg McLawsen is the managing attorney at Sound Immigration, an innovative (and going on virtual) immigration firm experimenting with lean and agile methodologies. He also focuses on introducing new technology tools to improve the effectiveness of law firms.
