While there’s expected growth in practice areas related to the pandemic, De Novo Review CEO and Founder Genny Castellanos says surges are nothing new. Rather than staff up with a permanent team, she and De Novo Review’s CSO Garrick Pursley tell host Christopher Anderson that more firms are using contract attorneys as needed.
Pursley says the shift from permanent splurge hiring to temporary surge hiring is accelerating for some because of the pandemic. While some lawyers are boning up on growth areas to meet demand, others are bringing in subject-matter experts to help them manage growth areas.
This ability to be flexible is especially critical as firms adapt to new revenue streams, new ways of acquiring clients and positioning in a fast-changing society.
Genny Castellanos is the founder and CEO of De Novo Review, and Garrick Pursley is De Novo Review’s CFO and COO.
