Oregon State Bar Bulletin — JANUARY 2016

Technology. Alternative billing methods. How attorneys advertise. How they communicate with clients. Ownership of practices and what practices will look like. How lawyers can provide high-quality and faster services in a way that clients can afford and understand. These are among the fast-growing trends that are disrupting the legal industry, and Ray Heysell, OSB’s president for 2016, says it’s time to raise awareness. Writer Cliff Collins and Bulletin editor Paul Nickell explore these trends in a profile of the state bar’s new leader.
