  Westlaw - Key Number 2015
 

We are starting off the week with a bit of slow news cycle today. This is par for the course as we kick off the summer here in the USA. We are also headed into a long holiday weekend in the States, so it is a double whammy. Nonetheless, we have chosen some great features for you today. While you are dreaming of fireworks and planning for your Independence Day barbecues, give these stories a read. They celebrate some of the best of what we do.

FYIs on AFAs

Across the legal industry, alternative fee arrangements continue to transform and frustrate. A new study from ALM highlights the ways in which firms are using AFAs in their practices and the internal disconnects that make them so tricky. Dewey B. Strategic's Jean O'Grady brings us the highlights from this study in her latest posting : Alternative Fee Arrangements: ALM Legal Intelligence Releases a New Survey of Law Firms and Legal Departments Adoption of AFA. As times continue to change, this is a topic to keep a close on eye on.
