The Predictions For 2017 Will Be Coming Soon

Sun, 17 May 2015 01:52:09 +0000

When you fire up your blog after an extended hiatus, you realize that some things have changed.  And also how much hasn’t.

Lumen Legal’s Trends for 2014

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 16:26:39 +0000

Lumen Legal has published a collection of Legal Trend predictions for 2014. There are insights from Lumen Legal founder David Galbenski, and noted enterprise legal industry leaders Edwin Reeser and Jeffrey Carr. And also me. Here’s one of my prognostications for 2014: Wallbillich also suggests that technology could impact continuing legal education, extending its focus […]

Forget BigLaw; Watch BigClient

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 13:10:12 +0000

I was asked last week what I thought about the prospects for “BigLaw.” That question can result in an answer which is too long at 20 seconds or too short at two hours. I opted for two minutes, suggesting that the sometimes pejorative term BigLaw really doesn’t do high-end corporate legal services justice. I noted […]

Lawyers and the State of Surveillance

Fri, 14 Jun 2013 14:25:18 +0000

Early last year, I wrote this: Personal data privacy is an interesting issue for lawyers. For some, it’s part of their corporate practice. For most, it’s a confusing technological jumble, something they want to trust to someone else. Interestingly, it was in the context of how the Obama administration was proposing a data privacy “bill […]

Bloomberg: Through the Looking Glass

Mon, 13 May 2013 13:10:22 +0000

When reporters become the story, you have something worth reading about. Late last week, multiple media sources revealed that Bloomberg news reporters had accessed information about customer usage of the Bloomberg financial terminal. The New York Times covers it this morning here; earlier reporting is summarized by Buzzfeed here. One of the first Bloomberg customers […]

Is the Real April Fool the Lawyer Who Sues a Client?

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 16:41:45 +0000

So there is this large dust-up, undoubtedly you’ve heard. A client doesn’t pay a law firm invoice after repeated requests. Law firm threatens to sue. Client doesn’t pay. Law firm sues. Client counterclaims. Client gets discovery. Client gets emails, files some as exhibits. Press gets emails: So law firm goes into damage control mode, declines […]

Detroit: Lawyers on the Case

Tue, 12 Mar 2013 13:27:43 +0000

Many in the United States think Detroit as an example of failure. Failed industry (autos), failed city (Chapter 9 looming?), failed leadership (see below). As a life-long resident of the greater Detroit area, I agree that all those designations may be true. But they don’t tell the full story. I don’t see Detroit just as […]

Groupon CEO Departs, Honestly

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 02:09:32 +0000

CEOs of publicly-held companies leave with some regularity. It’s typically “retirement,” “other interests,” or “new strategic direction.” We often know what really happened, but accept the duty to read between the lines like rookie CIA analysts deciphering Pravda editorials during the Cold War. So when Groupon CEO Andrew Mason departed today, he did so with […]

Legal Tech in the Age of the Consumer

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 15:28:26 +0000

On the second day of the powerhouse that is LegalTech, I thought it might be timely to look at two signs of change for technology as it affects the enterprise legal market. The fact that you have a conference that goes for nearly three full days is a testament to (a) its staying power, and […]

We Are Always Discounting

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 14:54:38 +0000

The subject of discounts holds perennial interest for enterprise lawyers. The best advisors tell leading law firms to avoid making fee discounts a strategy, and acknowledge that it often masks issues that run much deeper. This is the definition of discount typically at issue in the corporate legal space: A reduction made from the gross […]
