“This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.”
You may recall that famous advertising slogan from the 1980s. One could use a similar phrase when describing today’s legal marketplace. Changes in billing methods, improvements in technology, a turbulent economy and the globalization of the legal practice have left us with a landscape far different from the one we worked in even a decade ago.
This is the first edition of Lawyers USA's Lawyers in Practice, where we discuss the hot issues facing practicing attorneys and law firms.
In this edition, we discuss how to prevent legal malpractice claims with better communication, with Jim Calloway, director of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Management Assistance Program, and Dan Pinnington, vice-president of Claims Prevention and Stakeholder Relations at LawPRO, a professional liability carrier based in Toronto, Canada.
