The phrase “law new” is being used to describe a variety of practices and business models that legal firms are adopting to offer services in different ways, often on a standalone basis. These new models are aimed at meeting the needs of clients in a way that is more efficient and cost effective than the traditional methods of providing legal services. They typically include the use of outside counsel, alternative fee arrangements and staffing models, all designed to create a more flexible and client-centric legal approach.
In general, the term “law new” can be applied to any practice area or approach that departs from the traditional method of practicing law. It can also refer to the use of technology to improve the efficiency of a practice. For example, a law firm may employ the use of artificial intelligence to assist with document review, case management and other tasks that are traditionally performed by junior associates. Similarly, the use of chatbots to communicate with clients can be considered a form of law new.
New law can also refer to new initiatives or legislation that seeks to change existing law. For example, the recent introduction of a bill to require third party food delivery services to obtain a license in the City of New York is an attempt to regulate the industry. Other legislative proposals include legislation that would increase fines for criminal convictions of domestic violence offenses, and legislation to allow for a retrial in cases where the defendant was convicted by a jury of first degree murder in the first instance.
Another aspect of law new is the changing face of the legal market, and the increasing competition between elite law firms for the best talent. In addition to the traditional methods of hiring and retaining associates, some law firms are turning to outsiders and startups to augment their legal teams, paying millions to poach star partners and entire practice groups. The competition for the best legal talent has been a driving force behind the development of law new.
