The Demise of Heenan Blaikie
Drew Hasselback of the Legal Post interviewed Omar Ha-Redeye on the demise of the 500 lawyer firm of Heenan Blaikie:
…at the other end of the spectrum, a new generation of entrepreneurial lawyers sees opportunity in the change.
Omar Ha-Redeye, a Toronto practitioner who is co-chair of young lawyers division of the Ontario Bar Association, says the market is splitting into an elite group of top-tier firms, and a lower-end group of entrepreneurial firms and solo practitioners with lean, efficient practices.
“Anytime you have challenge in the market, it promotes innovation.”
Omar expanded on these thoughts in a post on Slaw.
