Alex McPherson: Agile working is the future of law in The Lawyer

Alex McPherson

Embrace technology and work from your garden

Technology is changing the face of the workforce: enabling employees to function away from their workplace outside traditional working hours, and that includes solicitors. The steady integration of technology into law firms has seen various changes to working practices, including more client-focused legal services delivered in real time.

By truly embracing technology, we can expect to see a new type of legal firm: one that brings a fresh and innovative approach, challenging current cultures and working to both the needs of the client and the law firm team.

Alex McPherson, co-founder of Ignition Law, talks to the Lawyer magazine about his vision of the future and how we can expect to see a shift away from billable hours and all-nighters in the office, towards optimising a work-life balance.
