What matters most to clients in choosing a lawyer?

Most practicing lawyers will have an opinion about that, but even better than an opinion is hard-and-fast data. And that is what is provided in the 2017 Legal Trends Report, compiled by practice management company Clio.

As part of its report, released last October, Clio surveyed more than 2,000 consumers and 3,000 legal professionals, compiling their responses to such questions as:

  • How do clients look for legal representation?
  • What factors into their decision to hire a lawyer?
  • How will future trends affect client expectations?

In a Feb. 15, webcast, How Clients Choose Lawyers According to the Legal Trends Report, I will explore the report’s findings in detail with Jack Newton, Clio’s founder and CEO. Newton will also offer insights into how lawyers can act on this information and how technology can help lawyers better serve clients.

The 60-minute webcast starts at 1 pm. EST. Attendance is free, but registration is required.

The webcast is sponsored by Clio and Above the Law.
