Peer Legal’s Peter Moran was a panelist last week at a Symposium on NewLaw held as part of RMIT’s Entrepreneurship Week. Together with fellow panelists Liz Harris of Innovim, Demetrio Zeno of LawSquared and RMIT law lecturer, Aaron Lane, the topics were wide ranging but all dealt with how some law firms, particularly smaller and boutique firms, are moving away from more traditional notions of delivering legal services.
At the forefront was how NewLaw firms are becoming much more client focused and discarding the notion of time as the sole metric of valuing a lawyer’s output. Peer Legal is already leading the way, in this regards, with its Aligned Pricing approach that prioritises an alignment between pricing for the outcomes delivered to clients and the value to the client in achieving those outcomes.
