The delivery of professional services has, of course, been changed by Internet technology and cloud-based platforms. Law firms, on the whole, are relatively slothful in embracing advancements; they are rapidly learning, however, that they are not exempt from the ramifications these developments have had for their professional counterparts. One virtual law firm’s Washington, D.C. office now purports to have done work for fully one-third of the city’s top 25 businesses by revenue, according to the ABA Journal.
Being technologically adept and accessible to legal clients no longer only means checking e-mail regularly, which may be news to some attorneys. Accessibility increasingly means availing the client of the lawyer’s own knowledge base and resources.
A great thing about the way things are progressing is that these resources are no longer solely the domain of large law firms, nor is access to them solely possible via the conduit of a large IT department. That used to be the case, but no longer. This has done amazing things to level the competitive landscape among law firms, and to increase the availability of quality legal representation to a greater sphere of businesses and individuals.
