40 specialist firms took the leap of faith and came out on top
After two years of turbulence and of merely reacting to the latest developments, law firms are finding their footing and taking charge once more. In particular, boutique law firms have flourished as the pandemic helped to uncover areas their lawyers could focus on specifically, such as employment law, offering tailored legal advice at reasonable costs.
Boutiques have learned to innovate and further refine their practices to meet their clients’ needs.
“Without a doubt, one of the silver linings of the pandemic is that it has forced entire industries to become more familiar with technology. It enables quicker and more accessible interactions between law firms, insurance companies and medical providers, which in turn has a flow on effect to our clients, their rehabilitation and their compensation cases,” says Leigh Davidson, principal solicitor at Top Boutique Advantage Legal.
Moreover, lawyers bound by traditional working hours and protocols have been granted the freedom to have a greater degree of control over their schedules. Firms have accepted that operations are proceeding smoothly outside of the office.
“We’ve seen most businesses relax into a hybrid working model that’s become the new normal, which we couldn’t have envisaged before the pandemic. Importantly, that has increased access for people of all abilities to be able to join the workforce in a way they couldn’t before,” says Danny King, principal of Top Boutique Danny King Legal.
