  • The Growing Importance of Tech-Enabled Law Practice August 10, 2017
    We can now make a very strong case for the growing importance of tech-enabled law practice. Of course, all law firms and law departments have technology. But mere infrastructure no longer suffices. Rather, lawyers must move to tech-enabled law practice to improve efficiency. Two developments prompted me to write this now. First, ILTACon 2017 starts Sunday – it’s […]

  • You can only cut once: why process improvement trumps layoffs June 20, 2016
    I’ve been watching the mad rush to match Cravath’s salary increases with a sense of wonder. The market is (mostly) flat. Demand is (mostly) down. There are still far too many law graduates.
