Professor David Wilkins joins Victor Li, legal affairs writer for the ABA Journal, and Laurence Colletti, producer for Legal Talk Network for a discussion about ‘The Global Age of More for Less’. Specifically, they address how the legal industry will need to adapt to globalization, speed of technology, and changing client preferences. Today’s client has more information and is asking for greater value at lower cost.
The old ways of building your legal practice are changing. It is no longer enough to simply charge more when you get better at what you do. In this new age of more for less, attorneys will have to find new ways to provide greater value at lower cost, while still making an adequate profit. Professor Wilkins advises that with difficulty comes great opportunities for those that are able to adapt to future market demands. Tune in to hear his ideas for harnessing technology, getting more out of employees, and working in networks so your legal practice can produce more for less.
