Law firms have an opportunity to set an example to other organisations, according to Andrew Cunningham, partner and innovation and networks leader at MinterEllison.

Regarding opportunities for the legal sector in a A$1.1 billion fund set up by the Australian government to help innovation in business, Mr Cunningham said: '[Law firms must] re-imagine what they do and the way they do it and be prepared to disrupt themselves to some extent. I think it's a bad thing if they are not prepared to change.' 

Enormous potential

He continued: 'There's an enormous amount of innovation potential in existing mature businesses and markets like law. There is a real opportunity for law firms to lead by example.' Source: Lawyers Weekly
