THERE COULD BE BLOOD – TONY WILSON (VOL. 21, NO. 2)
There will no doubt be lawyers and law firms, if there aren’t already, who make that sort of thing work.
Part of making the model work, though, will involve figuring out how to handle the increasing regulation that the Law Society sees fit (sometimes under pressure from government) to impose on the profession. I particularly have in the mind the new client identification and verification rules, particularly the verification side of things. The verification requirements undermine pretty much all benefits from use of technology achieved since the mid 1980s.
