HPC Expert Commentary: Can You Hear Me Now? The Future Of Law In Our Pockets

It’s September 12 and what you don’t already know about the new iPhone, you’re probably going to find out today. The ’phone in your pocket represents the empowerment of a generation and every future generation – the ability to self-serve, self-select, self-support.

HPC COMMENTARY: LEGAL EFFICIENCY IS LIKE CAKE THESE DAYS. YOU CAN HAVE IT – AND EAT IT.

HPC Analysis: Market Forces and Smart Leadership Shape Successful Technologies Like Mplace

Ford observed that his customers would have asked for faster horses but he saw the need – and opportunity – for the car. In modern law, it may be said that the co-founders of Mplace have a similarly bold view. The opportunity for something better, like Mplace, far outweighs the incremental changes others may suggest. Caleb and Aden are onto something – you can feel it. But even moreso, when you run the numbers, you know it.

Farming And Law – Worthy Professions Responding To The Unforgiving Voice Of Innovation.

“A moment – poised atop the vast field in the dark. Barely in our seats as the vast array pulls us steeply downward.
