When asked, managing partners of some of South Florida’s largest law firms agreed that one of the biggest challenges facing law firms today is “staying current with technology and meeting the evolving expectations of clients,” reports an article in the South Florida Legal Guide.
Co-managing shareholder of the firm's Fort Lauderdale office, Adele I. Stone, tells the publication that “Technology is one of the core issues affecting the future of the legal profession. It is a key factor in facilitating the delivery of legal services to those who are unable to afford attorneys. It’s also changing the practice of law in many other ways. If you can’t jump on the tech bandwagon now, you will be left behind, regardless of your legal experience and abilities.”
Stone, who has more than 15 years of experience as a managing shareholder, says the firm’s focus continues to be on growth and community outreach.
“Expanding our teams in Fort Lauderdale and Miami is a top priority for the entire firm,” she says. “South Florida presents a unique opportunity for growth and the time to capitalize on that is now, not later.”
