  • This is not news. Firms like DAC Beachcroft have been doing this for ages. Addleshaws do seem to be getting excited about the fact they are using paralegals to be doing work.....wow, welcome to the legal services market.

  • It's not just using paralegals, it's broadening the talent pool to find a new intake of bright young things who can be trained in the business side of law, not simply the technical legal side - although both are an option. Addleshaw Goddard's process mapping and document automation have given rise to unique options in terms of solutions for clients and interesting pathways for new entrants. If exploitation means an above average salary for an apprentice, proud parents, avoiding a huge university debt burden, youngsters with aspirations actually getting on in life and not being part of the much-maligned 'NEET' population, then bring it on. The youngsters I've met won't be at the bottom of the pecking order for long. There's also a growing opportunity for tech-savvy new blood to make their mark as the profession develops and the emphasis on different skills changes. Everyone has to start somewhere.
