Charon QC's UK Law Tour: Why does it matter?
Answer: Because Western lawyers are famously resistant to change. English and North American lawyers, especially. We simply do not roll that well with the ups and downs of changing markets. And, certainly, we rarely see changes coming. Last month our friend Charon QC began his UK Law Tour--a legal Domesday census, if you will--to see how we are all dealing with the "new normal" for the profession. See his podcast yesterday with London-based Jeremy Hopkins, the operations chief of Riverview Law, a new kind of firm launched in North West England in May of 2011. And what does "customer-centric" mean? Is that something lawyers can be? Surely, you jest, sir.
