Following a decision a couple of weeks ago (13 May 2014) of the EU Court of Justice, European citizens have a “right to be forgotten” – which includes, in essence, a right to be removed from Google search results – and required Google (and by implication other search engines) to comply with a ruling that requires it to provide a… Read more →
As I develop my business concept and blog, I’m looking to what’s already out there – both for inspiration and to identify what it is that clients and future clients might benefit from. I’m thinking of putting together some videos and other materials to help small entrepreneurial and creative businesses to identify when they need to get legal help. Here’s an example of the kind of thing I’m thinking about – brought to us by the sometimes over the top, always entertaining and often surprisingly insightful Maree Forleo – what do you think? What would you like to see in something similar for Australian small businesses – creative, entrepenurial or otherwise? Business structuring? Reading Contracts – or writing them? Employment basics?

The information is based on a survey of 102 Australian senior staff and partners across medium to large law firms. I’m not sure that lawyers are the first people I’d ask about legal technology – but Thomson Reuters are in a better place than most to make sense of the data! I’m really interested in what the new model of law firm is going to look like – I’m far from sure that I know the answer to that question.
