He will start by explaining that in-house counsel will increasingly require 'more for less'. In response, he will argue there are only two workable strategies. The first is the efficiency strategy, which requires lawyers to cut the costs of legal service, not simply by reducing expenses on support staff and on the back office, but by finding new ways of sourcing legal work (such as off-shoring, outsourcing, computerizing, commoditizing, and more). The second is the collaboration strategy which involves clients, in a variety of ways, sharing the costs of legal services. He will show how both strategies will be underpinned by existing and rapidly emerging information technologies, and especially Web 2.0. He will conclude by considering the future for lawyers in a legal market largely underpinned by technology and the Internet.
