    We are convinced that the billable hour is dead in IT and it makes sense that businesses and people start looking at the other services, including legal, which they consume the same way they look at their cell phone bill – a monthly recurring fixed fee with unlimited hours.

    Based upon this post, just bought The End of Lawyers? (Hope it has some application to a plaintiff's practice.) I am trying to figure out ways to use technology for the benefit of not only my clients and prospective clients. I understand the benefit of blogs and social media, but how to really leveraging technology to change the equation is something I hope your blog and Susskind's book can help me address.

    Great article, here is an example of a progressive computer forensics and e-discovery firm, Stroz Friendberg, LLC. They utilize very competent technology focused attorneys who would traditionally work for a large law firm but choose to utilize their skills by consulting. strozfriedberg.com

    Billable hours will disappear for entrepreneurial lawyers.

    Why?

    Because you can only work 40 hours a week.

    Which means you are limited in terms of productivity.

    Plus, you are limited because you are not leveraging true value.

    I.e what value you are delivering to the client which may be much
    more than the billable hour.

    Subscriptions will flourish. Because knowing what you are paying out
    each month makes it easy to budget. And knowing what you
    are getting in each month makes it easy to manage.

    Virtual law firms, where unhappy, experienced lawyers work
    on a retainer/commission structure will bloom. Lower overheads
    for the controlling company and more flexibility both sides.

    Technology is what prospects/clients want to get in touch.

    Why traipse into expensive real estate offices of a law firm
    when you can just as well skype from home/office.

    Firms will continue to discover niche areas and work faster and flexibly
    on smaller scales. These individuals or firms will not be restricted by
    geography, but more their expert status and how well known they are.

    La firms that survive and thrive will be those who learn how to become
    Great Legal Marketing firms because technical quality is expected yet
    Service quality is what is most in demand.

  • burberry outlet small

    I am going to start off with the burberry outlet that I went to last week on my day off from work. You either love burberry handbags or you hate burberry online store (given the chav reputation of burberry shoes that it has achieved over the past decade) but personally I am not a Burberry shirts fan but went along because a friend of mine wanted to go there. I had been there a couple of years before and got there by car which is probably the easiest way but this time we got there by train/bus.u00a0n
