Tomorrowland: Scenarios For Law Firms Beyond The Horizon
Tomorrowland: Scenarios for law firms beyond the horizon
Tomorrowland lays out possible future scenarios for law firms, ranging from “nothing changes,” to profound dislocations brought about by developments such as lawyer psychology blocking essential reforms, a dramatic escalation in the war for talent and "barbell" partner compensation models, the triumph of brand names (and the irrelevance of every other firm), the seemingly inexorable and deeply threatening rise of machine intelligence, new entrants including the Big Four grabbing market share, and more.
It doesn’t predict what will happen but explains what could, drawing widely from the history of other industries and broad experience with how markets evolve and change.

“No self-respecting law firm leader should be prepared to run the risk of leaving it unread.”—Charles Martin, Senior Partner, Macfarlanes
