How to Innovate: Futures for Small and Solo Law Firms

For some people, innovation means new technology. For others, it means making small changes to processes in order to be more efficient and effective. However you define innovation, making changes isn’t always easy. It takes time, it takes research and sometimes it takes a catalyst – the departure of a partner, or of a long-time administrative assistant – to discover there is a different or better way to do things.

How to Innovate looks at the state of innovation in the legal profession, and talks with small and solo practitioners about how they’ve made changes in their firms.

The companion document, Solo and Small Firm Evolution: A Practical Guide to Managing Change, offers guided thought exercises, worksheets and checklists to help practitioners in small firms work through whether change is right for them.
