This is an interesting take by Dr Beaton on the response of BigLaw firms to the challenges their business model is facing in the 21st century.

Adopting a partial flexible lawyer model is just tinkering around the edges, in my view. I doubt BigLaw firms are yet believing there's a "perfect storm" out there about to hit them nor are they ready to embrace wholesale change.

NewLaw firms such as Halebury are leading the way forward.
