Whitepaper: The Pace of Change in the Australian Legal Industry

The Pace of Change in the Australian Legal Industry whitepaper was developed based on a roundtable discussion hosted by LexisNexis in May 2011. The roundtable was set up to identify and explore how the legal industry – including large, mid and small law, in-house counsel and other influencers – is being affected by the pace of change, and how firms and their leadership teams are transforming the way their business is conducted in order to evolve with the market and customers.
The topics covered in this whitepaper include:

  • Depression and the impact on legal life
  • Social media and the effect of real-time communication
  • Billing
  • Globalisation of firms and the rise of niche firms
