What is inside the eBook?

1) A detailed guide on improving communication and career development in remote work

The last 2 years have changed many things in our lives, with the way we work being one of the greatest changes. Many professionals moved their entire workflow to remote and virtual workplaces, while some combined remote work with meetings in the office. In this eBook, we decided to investigate how these new working conditions affect professional development and communication within the companies and between entrepreneurs, specifically those working in the legal field.

We put together all the information you need and created a guide for legal professionals to move their work to remote while staying motivated, keeping healthy communication between colleagues, acquiring new skills, and developing professionally.

2) How to save and even increase personal productivity while working remotely

Productivity is a sensitive topic that is very personal to each professional. There is no exact method to increase productivity that would suit all, but there are plenty of techniques and, lately, technological advances, that create a possibility for choice in strategies. We went straight to experts in the legal field and asked for their true opinion and advice. In this eBook we have provided not only the popular techniques that can be helpful to people with different temperaments and preferences, but also advice that suits people working in law. All of the topics that are covered in eBook are backed up with quotes from our legal experts, their recommendations, and their opinions.

3) What are the other views on typical legal processes

In the final chapter of the eBook, we take a look at how the latest changes in overall work conditions have influenced typical processes in the workplace. We examined the possibility of implementing a flat structure in legal firms and the idea of holacracy in the workplace. We also checked with the experts on how they are creating transparency in communication with clients and whether pricing lawyers’ help for hours is still a modern way to work with people.
