Three Geeks Podcast: Why Retention of Legal Talent Can’t Be The Equivalent of a Coin Flip, Featuring Bryan Parker of Legal Innovators

Posted by Bryan Parker on Apr 29, 2020 10:00:00 AM

On April 10th - in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic - Legal Innovators CEO and Co-Founder Bryan Parker spoke with two of the Three Geeks, Marlene Gebauer and Greg Lambert, to talk about the Legal Innovators model and why the retention of junior legal talent today can't be the equivalent of a coin flip. 

Here's what Greg and Marlene had to say after their conversation with Bryan:

Greg: “This issue of spending seven figures on recruits to your law firm over the years and then having the retention of your investment be essentially a coin flip…it’s something we’ve been saying for a long time now that’s ripe for disruption and it seems like Bryan is one of the people on the cusp of that wave.” 

Marlene: “Exactly. This is a perfect time to start examining that because you cannot do all of the traditional things that you’ve done before. So attempting to look at this in a different way is quite timely.”

With the global economy besieged by the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are trying to figure out how to operate amidst a global crisis that has produced a major market disruption. After taking time to slow down and assess the situation, businesses must start thoughtful planning on how to survive this unprecedented time. This planning may include right-sizing cost structures for an unknown time period and investment in activities that can keep the business going as much as possible during this interim period. If a business can successfully navigate these murky waters, it gives itself the best chance possible to re-build and successfully compete in the marketplace on the other side of this market disruption.

Legal and Practical Concerns for Employers — One Employer's Approach to COVID-19

Posted by Bryan Parker on Mar 11, 2020 5:41:42 PM

As leaders of a new company in the Alternative Legal Service Provider (“ALSP”) space, the news of a possible pandemic weighs heavily on our hearts and minds.  Each day brings more news of cases of people contracting the COVID-19 virus, which is spreading at a rapid rate.  The constant news flow has raised questions about business travel, meetings, interviews for new talent, and employees working from home, among other considerations.

Legal Innovators is a start-up company, so we are running hard adding new clients, raising capital and adding new talent to our business.  We cannot afford a significant business interruption.  However, what is of greater concern to us is the health of our team (both existing and future members), our clients, and the general public. 

We thought in this moment, we would lead from the heart and head, listen to the medical professionals, and be as innovative as possible to run our business while protecting our teammates.

Toward that end, here are several legal considerations and practical tips for employers trying to develop a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
