Named a 2018 Attorney to Watch in Atlanta, Senior Solutions Architect Jonathan Sharpley discusses the impact Counsel On Call has had on the legal industry as well as what’s in store for the legal industry.
Embracing legal operations as a multidisciplinary function is a necessary step for legal departments to achieve increasing non-legal demands. Counsel On Call hosted interactive CLE panel for the Association of Corporate Counsel Georgia Chapter, where more than 50 legal operations professionals, attorneys and legal educators had an opportunity to discuss how corporations have defined a successful legal operations function. Although fewer than half of law departments reported having a formal legal operations role in 2017, demand continues to grow. An article recapping the event was featured in the Daily Report and the ACC Georgia Spring newsletter.
June 2017 Cover Story
In 2011, the ABA Journal initiated a series of reports on the shifting paradigm of law practice. This series looks at how the legal business is responding — and the legal profession often not responding — to pressures never before placed on lawyers and law firms: a maturing market, disruptive technology, economic recession and the rise of legal services competition.
This article, written by law professor William D. Henderson, who helped initiate the Paradigm Shift series, looks at managed services — a new category of legal firms that build systems to handle high-volume, repetitive work — and how they’re making millions of dollars from the effort.
