Podcast: Bigger is not always better – the 2014 State of the Law Firm Market
A new report from Georgetown University Law Center and Peer Monitor warns that unless law firms re-examine their traditional business models and embrace change in how legal services are delivered, they will not be able to successfully adjust to the significant outside forces that are reordering the industry.
