Attorney at Work readers always get the first look at Bob Denney’s annual “What's Hot and What’s Not in the Legal Profession” report on trends in the business of practicing law. Which practice areas are heating up or cooling off? Take a look! This is our 28th annual report on what’s going on in the legal profession. As with all previous reports, it is based on information my colleagues and I continually gather throughout the year from many sources — law firms, other providers of legal services, legal departments, surveys and the legal and general press. It is also the seventh such report to be published shortly after a presidential election and the fourth in which the election resulted in a change of party and, therefore, a change of administration. These changes always have some impact on the legal profession, mainly in practice areas, but we expect the Trump administration will have a greater impact on the profession than any of the past three changes of administration.Originally published November 28, 2016
