Remaking Law Firms ~ Why & How : Reviewed

By | October 11, 2017

I promised a review of ‘Remaking Law Firms – Why & How’ by George Beaton and Imme Kaschner in 2016 shortly after its publication. However, it has taken me a year to read and review it purely because my attention was diverted away from The Time Blawg and to blogging about the law as opposed […]

… I was in Glasgow, Scotland yesterday and not New York City, USA. I would have been in the latter attending the Reinvent Law Conference had the organisers invited Scott Greenfield to talk. I gave that promise following Reinvent Law London in 2013. It was not to be despite my proding. So instead I followed […]
