CANCELED FLIGHT? - While the phrase “flight to quality” unfairly suggests providers outside the Am Law 50 or 100 aren’t top notch, the willingness to seek out the counsel and the pay the rates of those high-end law firms was in full effect during the pandemic. Companies had more issues that warranted a price-insensitive approach to legal advice and they wanted the best brands to help guide them on these unprecedented, existential crises. But, as Law.com’s Gina Passarella writes in this week’s Barometer newsletter, that has started to shift. Economic constraints coupled with more routine legal issues have put other providers (smaller or boutique law firms and ALSPs) in the hunt for more legal work. To receive the Law.com Barometer directly to your inbox each week, click here.
