A new area of practice for legal firms is emerging that is focusing on helping clients in ways that are nontraditional. This form of practice is being referred to as “law new.” The idea behind it is that the field of law is expanding beyond traditional ways and lawyers are looking to tap into this potential. While it is a little challenging to define what law new entails, the overall concept has many benefits for legal firms.
One of the biggest areas that law firms are embracing is that of legal tech. This area of law focuses on helping clients through technology that can help with the day-to-day tasks of running a business. This can include anything from document management to electronic discovery. Using legal tech can save time, money and even lead to better results for clients.
Another big area that is growing within the legal field is that of alternative legal services providers. This is a group of companies, startups and law firm subsidiaries that augment traditional legal services through their own resources or outside consultants. While it is a small segment of the legal industry, this type of service has a lot to offer clients.
There is a lot of change going on in the world of legal practice, and lawyers need to be open to these changes. This is especially true for those who are exploring the field of law new. By understanding what this concept is all about and how it can be used, legal professionals can discover a way to offer the help that their clients need while also opening up a new source of revenue for their firm.
New York City law requires agencies that experience a data breach to promptly disclose the private information of individuals involved in the incident to the City’s Chief Privacy Officer, the Office of Cyber Command, and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications. This bill would amend the City’s data breach notification laws to align them with requirements in the State’s SHIELD Act.
