The New Lawyer: Trends that are Reshaping the Legal Industry (Infographic)

The legal landscape is shifting: globalization, alternative legal services, virtual law firms, and outsourcing legal processes are becoming the norm. As technology advances so does mobilization and global reach. Law firms are switching focus from the mega firm to the boutique, lawyers are working from home or from virtual offices, and international collaboration is no longer rare. There are more and more lawyers, and less and less jobs for them to fill. These trends point to a few key necessities: standing out against the competition, and the need for flexibility. Attorney telephone answering services provide all the benefits of a professional, onsite legal receptionist 7 days a week, day and night—for much less than the cost of even a part-time new hire and are an innovative way to keep your practice on track with the competition.

Work flow challenges are more prevalent for small and midsize firms. Save more of your time for legal advice and representation, allow a team of virtual legal assistants to assist you in securing new clients and working with present clients. Having this flexibility within your firm opens the door for you to focus on tapping into the fresh new workforce entering the legal industry.

Are you keeping up with the trends or have you spread yourself too thin? This infographic gives easy access to the latest statistics so you can compare yourself to the the new lawyer.
