Ten Trends: 2009-2012 Law Firms in Transition
In May 2009, Altman Weil launched the first Law Firms in Transition Survey. That year, and in each subsequent year, we have asked law firm leaders to assess a series of trends as either temporary or permanent. There are ten trends common to each survey since 2009.
The fourth annual Altman Weil Law Firms in Transition Survey finds that a dramatic shift in attitudes has occurred among US law firm leaders. Emerging legal market trends that were viewed with considerable skepticism in 2009 have become majority opinions in 2012.
