  • The most disruptive legal technology for small firms and solos will be legal marketplaces on the Rocket Mortgage and LendingTree model. The momentum is not in the direction of small firms and solos lawyers making more money and getting more leisure time by embracing technology, but rather downward pressure on revenue through technology-enabled “lawyer shopping”. THAT’S where the new Clio could be a game changer.
