  • Law firm of the future, second instalment: managing independence in a globally connected world
     

Description: 

The necessity of ‘professional independence’ is deeply rooted in the legal profession. Many law firms proudly state that they are ‘independent’, and in recent years, the meaning of ‘independent law firm’ has evolved to mean ‘not part of an international law firm’. However, in a globally connected world, the meaning of ‘independence’ is ever more elusive, and most if not all ‘independent law firms’ and their partners collaborate with international law firms in some way – on client work, business development and know-how.
