The legal field is one that constantly evolves. What works one quarter may not work the next, and it’s essential for all lawyers to understand what is taking place around them so they can best take advantage of any new opportunities to help clients. One concept that is growing and worth a closer look is law new, a term that refers to legal services provided in non-traditional ways.
It’s hard to pin down exactly what “new law” means, as the idea focuses on benefiting clients by providing services in innovative ways that might be outside of traditional practices. This can include working with underserved communities, finding new ways to serve the public and developing strategies that haven’t been a part of the law practice in the past.
For example, law firm partners can make the most of the new law trend by providing their expertise through webinars and other digital avenues. Or, they can collaborate with other firms to offer their services more broadly or in a way that wouldn’t be possible on their own. It’s a concept that all firms should be able to harness for their own growth and the benefit of their clients.
