    “Time to Leave Law-Law Land ... and Head Back Into the Jungle”
    Fuelled by advancing technology, new business models, and altered client expectations, the legal industry faces unprecedented change across its entire value chain. Unfortunately, many legal professionals fear the technology train and the convergence of other fields with law. They see legaltech, AI, and bots like “lions and tigers and bears oh my.” We (the curators and authors of this book) see opportunity. Although the future may require us to put on “new suits”—it represents an enormous opportunity for lawyers to reinvent ourselves for our own and our clients’ benefit. Filled with chapters written by experts in the intersection of law, innovation, and technology, this book provides a global perspective on the diverse legal service delivery ecosystem that will be our future. It provides chapter upon chapter (reason upon reason) explaining why lawyers can and should increase their appetite for disruption in the legal world. So welcome to the jungle and enjoy the ride as we attempt to systematically map the uncharted waters of the future legal realm and simultaneously inspire you to build a new future in law.


    «Lawyers have been trained to look backwards, to precedent, to find the solutions to their client’s problems. So it should come as no surprise that the profession is «stuck» when it comes to adapting to technology and the need to understand its transformational impact on the future of legal practice as we know it. This book not only helps the reticent among us better understand why they can no longer stand on the sidelines and hope they finish their careers before being forced to change how they practice, but also gives comfort that client service and satisfaction will improve significantly with its adoption. «New Suits» not only provides the step by step to get to acceptance, adoption and successful implementation of new legal technology, but also helps the reader overcome their fear that the profession’s transformation must be seen in a negative light, rather then a unique opportunity for growth.»

    «To lead change, it is critical to engage emotion, find common purpose and build a sense of urgency. With New Suits, two of the brightest, energetic and creative leaders in the world of legal innovation, Guenther Dobrauz and Michele DeStefano, generously provide legal leaders with the frameworks, data and perspectives they need to build the case for change NOW. By engaging a diverse, cutting-edge team of contributors to New Suits, Guenther and Michele practice, too, what they preach—teamwork and a rigorous, interdisciplinary approach to solving problems. I’m now ready for my New Suit!»

    Professor Scott A Westfahl, Professor of Practise & Director Executive Education, Harvard Law School

    «For a while now, we have been hearing about digitization, disruption and new delivery models in the world of Big Law. «New Suits» both reassures and gives a wake-up call to all of us in the business of providing legal services. Setting out both the opportunities and the threats engendered by the dynamic change in our industry, the book is an invaluable guide to all lawyers and legal business professionals wanting some insight on the challenges facing them in a globalized and accelerating world.»

    Dr Matthias Lichtblau, CMS

    «This book spells massive opportunity… for all those who get excited about change. Legal disruption isn't coming, it has already been here for some time. Michele and Guenther provide an extremely well researched and thoughtful analysis of how that disruption is going to play out in the mid to long term. No scare-mongering here, but a really useful early-warning system for those wanting to profit from the innovation and efficiencies that market demand is successfully driving into every corner of the global legal sector.»

    Richard Macklin, Partner & Global Vice Chair, Dentons

    «Those of us interested and involved in today’s rapidly changing world of legal services delivery have in recent years had plenty of go-to sources to whet our appetites on the topic. But never before has there been in the «legal world» such an elucidation of the «appetite for disruption» as brought to us by Michele DeStefano and Guenther Dobrauz in their new book. The breadth and depth of the history, in theory and in practice, and the future of legal services transformation one finds in «New Suits» is both welcome and exceptional. It will no doubt be widely referred to by general counsels and outside counsel often and extensively as we all continue this interesting journey into the era of the digital lawyer.»

    William Deckelmann, General Counsel, DXC Technology

    «This book comes at a time where we see just the beginning of a transformational change on the legal market. While such transformation is seen as a great opportunity for those participants who endorse change and innovations, others seem to be more frightened by potential disruption of their well-established business models. The structure and comprehensive contributor listing for this book encapsulates many disparate challenges faced by almost all players on the market. The lecture of the book should give good guidance to anyone who is interested in how the legal profession is (finally) modernizing, capitalizing on technology trends and becoming more client-centric.»

    Dr Cornelius Grossmann, Global Law Leader, EY Law

    «New Suits is signaling something different about the staid legal industry – evidence of a sincere appetite to change and potentially switch paradigms. Congrats to DeStefano and Dobrauz for pulling together an important and original work of applied research.»

    Professor Bill Henderson, Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Stephen F Burns Chair on the Legal Profession
