What is Law New?
The word new is often used to describe a product, service or business that is innovative. In the context of law, it could be said that “law new” is a combination of new ways to deliver legal services, new technology tools and a non-traditional business model. The goal of this type of practice is to provide legal services in a way that is beneficial to the client. This approach may include a flat fee or other alternatives to the hourly bill.
Unlike the legacy legal industry that is mired in the past, the leaders of law new are focused on delivering value to clients. This means finding new ways to serve their clients more effectively and embracing the new technologies that can help them do so. They are also rethinking the traditional business models that were once the bedrock of the legal industry.
In other words, they are attempting to find new law that is more in line with the needs and expectations of today’s legal consumers and society at large. This new law is based on collaboration and fluidity and seeks to bring the legal industry closer to its customers and businesses.
This is best seen in the form of multidisciplinary legal teams that are part of a larger enterprise business unit and work collaboratively to support a client’s core offerings. This also includes legal providers who are integrated with their supply chains, erasing artificial lawyer-created distinctions between provider sources.
Another key aspect of law new is that it embraces the fluidity and collaboration that is a hallmark of the business world today. The automotive industry, for example, is known for its partnerships across a wide range of development initiatives. Similarly, competing companies in different industries routinely collaborate to develop new products and services that improve their performance and competitiveness.
Finally, law new is about human adaptation and change management. This is an era in which change happens at breakneck speed and the ability of humans to adapt quickly is the single greatest competitive advantage. As a result, many organizations are looking to their legal function to facilitate the transformation process and lead it.
