Legal Developments in 2014


       The year has seen a number of changes and developements: contingency and incentive fee agreements used more widely, clients search nationally for counsel realizing there are multiple possible venues for claims, cost-savings by attorneys with clients doing more leg-work and organization of information, wider use of social media to evaluate counsel,  law catches up with other services in meeting client objectives at a reasonable and ascertainable cost, analytics and measures of performance for example, closer case evaluation for defendants- does settling claims early save money and reduce costs or prompt more claims, use of higher-end attorneys for evaluation and lower-priced ones for routine tasks, better transparency in case handling and billing,
