Differentiation in Legal Services: What’s Innovation Got To Do With It?

Lawyers, no matter where they work (big law firm, SME law firm, or solo), are on a race to differentiate their legal services from others. The question is: how? This session will explore that question. It will begin by describing the mindset, skillset, and behaviors clients say they want from their lawyers and it will conclude by demonstrating that innovation is the secret ingredient to differentiated legal services for all lawyers.
