As a volunteer-led organization we believe in responding to the needs of a legal industry that is changing fast. After much discussion with our members and our peers, the non-profit membership organization LTC4 is changing too!
It has now been over a decade since the pace of conversation surrounding what constitutes good value to law firm clients really picked up. The triggering of the 2008 recession gave rise to renewed calls for ‘more for less’ in many quarters, and firms responded with measures including a range of alternative fees to the hourly rate, resourcing changes such as through shared-service centres, and more creative ‘client listening’ exercises.
Law firms have long had the objective of forming stronger bonds with their clients, but today the pressure to successfully differentiate your firm as the one with whom the client should really be doing business is huge. The Big Four have both re-entered and started to disrupt the legal market, and the largest firms have launched entire innovation departments to show just how seriously they take the need to ‘do things differently’. One consequence of this must be that firms – innovative or otherwise – take steps to retain those clients they have already won over.
As some wise person once said, necessity is often the mother of invention. Stephen Allen, global head of legal operations and innovation lead at Hogan Lovells, explains that Clocktimizer, which his firm has been using to wrangle and enrich its data stores, was created by a former corporate lawyer at DLA Piper, who found himself endlessly going through bills and narratives at the end of a matter. It was, as Allen puts it, “rooted in a genuine need.”
