“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”
Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.
How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?
Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead
Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.
Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.
Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!
In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Akin Sawyerr, Managing Director of Feleman Limited, a venture advisory firm focused on leveraging Blockchain technology to create value in underserved communities. Akin also serves in a Strategy & Operations leadership role with Barnbridge, a derivatives protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. Previously, Akin served as the Strategy and Africa Lead for Decred. Before that spent fifteen years in management consulting and Fortune 500 corps. He led strategic and organization transformation projects at Booz Allen Hamilton and Accenture and held leadership positions with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. And to add to this impressive list of credentials, Akin began his career at the International Monetary Fund in the Technology and General Services Group where he conducted economic research and data analysis in support of IMF country strategies across Africa, Asia and Europe. We discussed the current state of the crypto ecosystem, the future money and work in the US and abroad on the continent of Africa and where we go from here. Specifically, we talk about Nigeria as a case study for how distrust in a political and financial system can lead to a shift where citizens opt-out to adopt other self-custody value transfer options. For example, esusus (informal lending groups) are a popular means to create and protect wealth based on familial relationships or affinity groups, create a community of trust and honor that is “off the books” In the case of esusus, they are not digitized. They are IRL cultural norms. But if they were digitized … perhaps they’d look A LOT like blockchain communities. We explore what it would look like to digitize cooperative economics for the unbanked, underbanked and those who want an alternative hedge against government-issued money (aka fiat).SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY There’s a more cost effective and time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition to create opportunity and generational wealth in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy.
