Why Market Research, Competitive Intel, and AI?
When I asked Mark what compelled him to offer his services, he said he was driven to stay at the forefront of business and it seemed a perfect fit to bring market research to law firms and his intellectual capital to the changing market. Lawyers benefit most from Mark’s ability to help them minimize the risk in running their business by prudently implementing current best practices. So often, a firm’s strategic plan is anything but strategic. The plan is often filled with feel-good platitudes that everyone agrees on. If that’s the case, you do not have a meaningful strategic plan.
Mark says if lawyers don’t pay closer attention to this changing landscape, and engage in “business as usual,” waiting for the world to change around them, they will soon wonder what happened to their business. He advises lawyers to always be on the lookout for best practices in other industries, not just legal. Look at the Big Four and alternative service providers as well.
