From Oregon State Bar Bulletin: "Unbundling in the 21st Century"
"Unbundling in the 21st Century" from Oregon State Bar Bulletin. Under the auspices of telling lawyers "How to Reduce Malpractice Exposure While Meeting Client Needs," this post provides an (almost) exhaustive list of questions every lawyer should ask, in every situation, as they move into the unfamiliar territories of outsourcing and unbundling. Change is hard, particularly when your client's needs, rights and privacy are thrown into the mix -- along with your own reputation and potential malpractice exposure -- but it is practical and useful posts like this that will help lawyers manage the change, minimize the risks, and move the profession into the 21st century.
