The End of Lawyers? and Tomorrow's Lawyers.
It's safe to say that I pretty much agree with almost everything he writes about in The End of Lawyers?...and have done so since 2008 as you can see from historic posts on this site.
His most recent book Tomorrow's Lawyers was quite good but I do have to put it on record that I disagree with his claim that High Street Lawyers are going to be pretty much dead in the water in the immediate future.
I can see why he would say that and recent evidence might go someway to justifying his position...but for the firms that organise themselves and sort out their business model, I think that his prediction will be totally wrong.
In fact, they will flourish.
Some of the big legal firms' financial coats are on a shoogly peg right now and the ones in the middle are dithering over what to do next. But the smaller, one, two, three or four man firms who's demise has been predicted are bucking the trend.
They are the ones least hit by the ban on Personal Injury referral fees and are coping with the banks' inability or reluctance to lend. But they are also the ones that are taking action. They are not sitting it out. They are upgrading their cms, gathering their wip and going out looking for business and giving their services on the terms that the client wants at a price they want.
"Illegitimi non Carborundum" is their motto and they are doing well for it.
