If you haven’t seen it, SeyfarthLean Consulting LLC – a wholly subidary of US law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP – Seytlines Changing the Practice of Law blog for the 18th August by Kenneth Grady was on the issue of ‘Lawyers Need an App for That‘.
Overall a really good read, but in my opinion the gem takeout of this post comes under the final paragraph headed “Technology Can Help Lawyers Add Value” and reads:
“As technology noses into the delivery of legal services, lawyers must become more focused on where they add value. Understanding the core human thing, the social experience, is a defining difference. By using technology creatively, such as an app to speed communication on matters in ways that enable continuous improvement, lawyers can facilitate client problem solving and higher quality communication. This type of differentiation will separate lawyers from minute-counters.”
If you forget everything else this week, remember this.
