“NewLaw is more than just business models focused on online technologies or delivering fixed-price legal services. It is about liberating the practice of law from the structures which have historically limited career growth paths and positive outcomes for legal professionals. While a decade ago new legal business models emerged, for the most part, NewLaw is about legal professionals thinking of new ways of doing business, through technology or other means, to create a better situation for both themselves and their clients. No single model will be the ultimate answer. The key is flexibility in the mode of delivery of legal services,” said Marcus.
