Herbert Smith Freehills CEO Mark Rigotti has published a thought-provoking article in today's on-line edition of LegalWeek.

As we start 2019, his comments should be "required reading" -- and required thinking -- for lawyers everywhere.

Mr. Rigotti observes:

Yet one of the certainties about leading a global organisation is that change is going to happen. What guides me every day at Herbert Smith Freehills is the idea that tomorrow will not be the same as today. The pace of technological advance means our people need to be more responsive than ever in understanding innovation and how it can improve the service we offer our clients.

He describes the law firm of 2049 in terms that also relevant -- and, indeed, for some law firms, urgent -- today:

What will not change 30 years from now is that success is heavily anchored on the clients and the talent that each firm can attract, retain and build sustainable relationships with.

Is your law firm headed in this direction? How can you be sure?
