When it comes to bringing new ideas, processes, technologies and multidisciplinary expertise to the legal industry, “law new” is fresh icing on stale cake. This is a good thing for both customers and law firms, but it’s not enough to disrupt legal delivery, which still needs paradigm change to drive customer impact and enhance experience.
In a world where collaboration is essential to the success of enterprises and their stakeholders, the pace of business has increased exponentially. To master this rapid, fluid, global environment and meet accelerating demand, businesses must collaborate across functions, enterprises, and even competitors. This is particularly true for the legal function, which is at the center of many significant business challenges.
The term “law new” is also being used to refer to a more collaborative approach to legal matters, and the way that law firms deliver services. Historically, legal delivery has been driven by a number of factors including cost reduction and efficiency, and the need to deliver value for money. In some cases, these objectives have been achieved by leveraging established business processes and technology, and bringing in non-lawyers to support the function.
However, the more significant drivers of law new are legal buyer activism and corporate Goliaths who have the brand, capital, know-how, customer-centricity, data mastery, tech platforms, agile, multidisciplinary workforces, and footprint in or familiarity with the legal industry. These players are poised to redefine law in a way that is more accessible, affordable, practical, efficient, and solution-based than ever before.
