It is probably safe to say that there is more than the usual amount of head scratching by those of us who try to predict the future and create strategic business plans.
It is a time of opportunity as well as challenge. In the legal field, a few key skills will keep you on track, in my opinion.
First, don't resist change. The legal and business landscape is changing in a fundamental way and we all need to change with it if we want to stay professionally "healthy." For those aiming at a law firm, consider reformulating your goals. Be open to change in practice area, size of firm, or geography. If you are an established senior attorney, you may need to consider a new platform to keep your careeron a firm foundation.
