Law firms are increasingly looking for ways to meet client expectations while also maintaining profitability themselves. When I started out as an M&A associate over 20 years ago, meeting client and business demands was all about billing over 3,000 hours a year, leaving little room for a single day off despite the firm’s “unlimited” vacation policy. But the game has changed substantially for law firms today — the evolution of the legal business model is underway and artificial intelligence (AI) is playing a big role in calling time on the billable hour.

There’s no doubt that much of the legal industry’s profit gains are simply the result of surging demand. But smart firms were also able to harness booming demand to push through rate increases, owing to clients who were desperate to see their deals go through. There’s no doubt that the firms taking advantage of this confluence are in an enviable position. That doesn’t mean they are sitting on their laurels.
