Interview (part 2) , “The Legal Forecast”, September 18, 2019:
“Flatiron is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the winds of change in the legal industry. Clients want law firms to evolve. They want law firms to deliver their services on a more efficient basis, like other industries in the new economy. But big law can’t change. It is locked into its high overhead and compensation models. Flatiron, with our application of technology and modern business practices, can be that agent of change in the legal industry. We can deliver high quality legal services, with terrific outcomes, but in the more cost efficient, streamlined way that clients want!”
