"If law firms are to escape commoditization by creating a new partnership with clients, they must innovate in ways

that junior lawyers can provide business-focused, client-specialized expertise far earlier in their careers; and (2)

harnessing the collective knowledge and expertise of the firm for efficient delivery of creative, premium-level advice

and advocacy."
