How to Use 2021’s Legal Tech Trends to Your Advantage With Joshua Lenon of Clio

Watch on

There’s no doubt in our minds that the right relationship with technology can be the difference between success and stagnation for a law firm, especially right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everyone’s relationship with technology over the past couple years, and it’s meant that a lot of lawyers have had to hustle to keep up with the demands and expectations of an increasingly savvy client base. 

Legal Trends Report from ClioThat’s a big part of why I’ve been so excited to talk with Joshua Lenon, the Lawyer in Residence over at Clio. They’ve released their 2021 Legal Trends Report, which is full of incredible data about how law firms use, implement, adopt, and succeed with technology.

And, wow, did he ever have some revelations to share with us about what happened last year!

The coolest part is that all this data is about as fresh as it comes, and it shows you exactly how real law firms adapted to the ongoing pandemic (and everything else) over the course of 2021—and how some of them made their practices better than ever! 

A few of these trends are no surprise at all, and some of them might drop your jaw. 

But there’s only one way to find out for sure!

Tune into this episode of the World of Marketing as Joshua tells us:

  • How data was compiled for the 2021 Legal Trends Report

  • The most surprising things uncovered in their research

  • The types of business mistakes that are made by lawyers all over the nation (and confirmed by hard data)

  • How to understand Clio’s findings and what to do with that knowledge

  • Other key takeaways that will improve the business side of your law practice

So, buckle up! This is valuable stuff for ANY lawyer! Download the 2021 Legal Trends Report here.

Master the Art and Science of Marketing Your Business Online

Marketing Growth

Just like anything else of value, digital marketing success is built up over time. At FWM, it starts with a conversion-focused website and our intuitive Dynamic Self-Syndication (DSS) software, but we don’t leave you hanging once your website goes live. 

Instead, we work with you to develop a long-term growth strategy for your business that you can comfortably put into action, one piece at a time.

Attract, convert, retain

You get the same expertly designed website, DSS access, and marketing services—individualized to your unique practice’s needs—that inspire our other successful DIY clients. But, because we understand that sometimes you have to crawl before you can walk, you also get one-on-one coaching to show you exactly how to use those tools more effectively, create an actionable strategy, and set your sights on bigger wins.   

Strategic coaching with FWM gives your DIY marketing the edge you need to get in the fast lane to more leads, more attention, more clients, and more growth for your business.
