Mark Sloan Quoted in Of Counsel on Legal Industry Trends

“Recent Survey Shows a Profession in Need of Major Changes”

At Dallas-based Thompson & Knight, managing partner Mark Sloan says although his firm has been very busy in the last couple of years, he has seen that, profession-wide, the market demand level has not returned to what it was eight years ago. He points to two other factors as contributing causes. “The market never has gotten back to the same level it was before the recession, for various reasons,” he says, as other do, that more work is going in-house. “Alternative service providers are getting more work as well. And, there may be some aversion to litigate matters as often as they were in the past.”
