I’ve been writing here about the new survey of small-solo law firm management conducted by Thomson Reuters Solo and Small Law Firm group, to which I was given exclusive first-look access. As I’ve read through the survey results, I was struck by a consistent fact. In almost every category covered, solos stood alone. Their responses consistently and sometimes significantly differed from those of lawyers in any other sized small firms.

For example, solos are far more concerned than other lawyers about the threats to their practices from consumers who handle their matters pro se or through do-it-yourself websites.

For my Above the Law column this week, I’ve gone through the survey and highlighted some of the ways in which solos stand apart. Read more here: This Week in Legal Tech: Survey Sheds Light on How Solos Differ.
