So, Ms. Olson notes the reason for the redistribution of wealth is because Big Law is under the scrutiny of their broke-ass corporate clients. I experienced this myself while working at Big Law. The corporate clients would audit the legal bills and make demands like "Can't Contract Attorneys (in India) do this work?" Big Law, you're late to the pity party. Most lawyers deal with broke-ster clients that micro-manage your case because of costs. Actually, i would venture to guess that most of legal strategy is defined by cost. Ideally, you'd like to do the best for your clients, but they can't afford to have you pull all stops for them. Now corporations are feeling the crunch and are similarly trying to micro-manage their legal teams. So, bull shit story short, the legal world is changing and it's looking less stellar for the creme de la creme. What a mundane story. It's like focusing on the gas tank leak at the corner Exxon while the BP Oil Spill is gushing in the Gulf of Mexico. Journalists love to focus on the non-stories. It makes the world seem like a decent place.
