In order to succeed…..

"The End of Lawyers" by Richard Susskind is a great read to get you thinking about the future of the practice of law. You may or may not agree with his predictions, but reading the book will certainly make you think about how you can have a positive impact on the future of your law practice. Doing everything the same way and expecting different results is not likely to enhance the success of your practice.

Especially if you are in the process of evaluating and upgrading the technology systems used by your office, consider the following concept adapted from his book:

Success will require working more quickly, more cheaply, more efficiently and to a higher quality using different methods of working.

Susskind doesn’t suggest you should deliver less to your clients, he contends that you can deliver more and better service if you advantage technology in your practice. Think about it.
