I refer to the response by Kevin Westwood in last week's The Lawyer (The law belongs to lawyers) to my letter on MDPs.
I absolutely agree that lawyers should not roll over and play dead to business expansion opportunities.
That is exactly the point of my argument. Lawyers should embrace business opportunities for expansion and growth and the provision of a wider and more sustainable venue of services to our clients.
The only lawyers that will suffer from the advent of MDPs are those who do not have the vision to realise what is on offer and to lead from the front. It is not as though MDPs are not going to happen. This is a worldwide movement already in place.
