NewLaw isn’t new anymore

NewLaw isn’t new anymore

The past few years have seen a handful of key trends – accelerated by COVID-19 – that may mean that NewLaw is no longer an alternative methodology for legal practice. It may, ironically, no longer be new.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Ashurst Advance partner and COO Hilary Goodier to unpack three trends she has observed in recent years that present both challenges and opportunities for NewLaw practitioners to ensure their service offerings are commensurate to evolving client needs and expectations.


Ms Goodier also discusses the place of Ashurst Advance (the NewLaw division of global firm Ashurst), how and why BigLaw firms are increasingly looking to NewLaw, and when we will reach the inflection point whereby NewLaw is favoured over traditional practice methods in private practice.
