The Pandemic Times
Our legal team at SS Law is helping our clients to address the current challenges they face.
The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing changes in the way the world (including the world of business) works to such a degree that the effects are sure to extend far beyond the current situation. In the legal world, there are currently a variety of responses in play. The Supreme Court postponed oral arguments for the first time since 1918, and many courts are also canceling hearings and non-case related meetings. Some district courts, criminal courts, and legal services organizations have held out closing or are going fully remote, but it may only be a matter of time before access to justice will come to mean online access – a change that will likely remain in some forms post-pandemic.
It prepared the attorneys and support staff to work from home and fully close offices in cities that have mandated it. The law firms proactively approached the needs of corporate clients and created cross-disciplinary task forces and released checklists and guidance for their clients, often making this material available for free. With social distancing in place, the firms are rotating teams of lawyers in and out each day. This platooning strategy allowed the firm to maintain a presence in its offices while minimizing the chances for its attorneys to encounter the virus. It also offered scalable collaboration and presentation, designed for “anywhere access” and is well-equipped to handle the increased traffic as legal professionals conduct internal and external meetings, litigation teams work in concert to craft their arguments and write and submit briefs, and firm managers access and analyze their teams’ workflow. Like the concept of remote lawyering.
Keeping pace with the On-Going Momentum
The legal profession is a competitive one. These changing times can be exciting and dynamic, but with them comes a host of challenges. The major challenges include Globalization/ Competition, Low-Cost Legal Service Providers, New Lawyer Development, Technology, The Internet, and challenging clients. There has been a paradigm shift in how the legal industry works today than ever before. Earlier it was all about legacies of a family pursuing the profession, toiling long hours, sweating it out, and more. Getting some legal information which was a pain in the neck once, is now only a few clicks away.
Technology is a boon for law professionals also, as they no longer have to hunt for their clients. The legal process has also become a kind of speedier than ever. Due to the changing economic times, there has been a constant effort by the legal professionals to find new ways to attain and retain their clients, ultimately making this sector more effective, efficient, accessible, and reliable.
The SMART Approach
SS Law believes in nothing is impossible and our Mission is your Success.
At SS Law firm, it focuses on SMART goals i.e. specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely. Managers should consistently provide feedback and keep employees focused on their performance. Feedback acts as a reminder. Without it, employees get too caught up in their daily tasks and lose sight of the bigger picture. As we all know, the legal market is approaching a tipping point. By practicing SMART Goal and updating new technology, constantly validating the legal market, the firm will reach new heights.
Few words of wisdom for young legal aspirants, “Certification is far less important than success, and certification doesn’t guarantee success. Young aspirants prepare themselves, they have a real hard time when they begin their legal career. They have to concentrate on their general intelligence and knowledge of the law.”
The Upcoming Times
During the last decade, countless predictions were made about the coming age of innovation in the legal industry, but there was only marginal incremental change. Once Sudhindra quoted, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.” Something no one predicted is that it would take a global pandemic to finally usher in an era of actual innovation that is, implementing change. Nothing awakens necessity more than a crisis. Now, the legal field is beginning to look beyond the urgency and immediacy of the onset of this crisis and trying to assess what comes next. It seems all but certain that any hope of a “V-shaped” recovery, ushering in a swift return to the “old normal,” is wishful thinking. It is in a liminal space, which is a transitional time between what was and what is next.
Other themes will deepen and accelerate trends in the legal marketplace. As the economy continues to weaken, there will be churn in corporate legal departments, leading to fractured relationships and opportunities for non-incumbents. As the demand for legal services lessens, supply will increase, leaving lawyers, and law firms that lack strong positioning and differentiation struggling to overcome perceptions that they’re offering nothing more than a commodity. The number of innovations that can be hatched to address these and other developments is limited only by a law firm’s dedication to strategic thinking. The task ahead is massive, but as with any difficult task, the only way to approach it is one step at a time.
