Referat från Christian Sandströms föreläsning på VQ Forum 2016
Christian Sandström’s research concerns technological change, discontinuous innovations and the challenges they present. Based on his own research, he analysed how digitalization and automation, free access to information, technology developments and new kinds of competition will affect the legal market. His answer to the question if law firms will experience a disruption similar to the one that Kodak, Nokia and the music industry has suffered, was the all so familiar response in the legal profession “it depends”.
More precisely, a legal disruption depends on the following four main factors:
- Incentives and attention
- Whether competencies and assets retain their value
If the business model is distorted
- What happens to the industry structure
