He’s Changed the Way Law Is Practiced

I remember when I first corresponded with Enrico Schaefer, the Greatest American Lawyer back in the early days of the blogosphere. At the time, Enrico had just left his firm to start his own and was blogging anonymously presumably to keep his former partner from learning the details of his plan.

When Enrico started his blog, he was on a mission to change the way law is practiced. And while the legal landscape looks much different than back in 2005 when Enrico launched, there’s still more of the same old same old than most of us would like. But at least, Enrico has changed his piece of the legal world by building a successful, innovative legal firm with a global presence . Lots of the practices that today’s lawyers are labeling as “innovative” – client portals, paperless offices, flat fees, streamlined retainers , money back guarantees and virtual assistants – were staples of Enrico’s practice when he opened his doors six years ago.

Staying at the forefront in a changing legal landscape is always a challenge – so I was thrilled to see that Enrico’s firm is still capturing the attention it deserves – an engaging writeup in a and an interview on Michigan Entrepreneur. I for one will look forward to the continued surprises that Enrico’s firm will bring – and if you’re just starting out or looking for ways to reinvigorate your practice, you should keep an eye on him too.

  • Thanks for pointing out Enrico Schaefer and his experience building a new model for law practice.  Listening to him, it all sounds like common sense.  We could use a bit more of that in and out of the legal community.
