U.S. productivity in 2020 had the largest gain since 1965. It’s no coincidence this surge occurred during the Coronavirus pandemic. Sudden workplace shifts produce innovations that would have taken years to implement when “time allowed” -- and to great effect. As it turns out, it wasn’t that hard to change, after all, was it?
Catapulted out of their offices and into their homes for remote work, attorneys have been forced to face-off with the “new normal” where marketing, intake, case management, billing, and other elements of their law practices don’t work like they once did. But for an underdog industry long seen as “behind the times,” lacking the technical prowess of other faster-moving sectors, Legal has displayed remarkable gusto and resilience.
In this session, 5 experts from leading legal technology, casework, and marketing solution providers will provide a rundown of the highest-impact changes attorneys can make in their firms right now to not just survive, but thrive. After all, resilience may be sufficient to sustain firms in the short run, but in the long run, substantial business growth -- best achieved through incremental, intentional changes -- is what’s truly desired.
Speakers: Mark Homer, GNGF; Amy Mann, LawPay, Nefra MacDonald, Clio; Maddy Martin, Smith.ai, Palo Alto, CA; and Kristin Tyler, LAWCLERK, Las Vegas, NV
