American Bar Association Studies The Future; Axiom Opens An Office, Hires Lawyers In Charlotte
The American Bar Association recently released its Report on the Future of Legal Services in the United States. Not long afterward, the ABA House of Delegates refused to approve outside investment in law firms. The ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services contemplates state-by-state examinations of the issue, to be followed by local decisions state by state.
Last week, Axiom, a provider of “legal solutions” and “leader in the business of law,” announced opening an office in Charlotte.
Axiom is not a law firm. It is a business. It employs lawyers. It delivers legal services. It is an “alternative to the traditional law firm” — “more flexible, elastic, and commercially-minded”.
Axiom has begun hiring lawyers for Charlotte. It is hiring “elite talent that wants to practice in the Axiom mode.” And “looking at every practice area.”
So, there’s them that studies and them that does.
