Partner Thomas Rouhette comments in Option Droit et Affaires, sharing his wishes for the French legal landscape in 2020 and his vision on the evolution of the legal profession in the next decade.
The comments were published in Option Droit et Affaires, 8 January 2020, and can be read here.
Thomas discusses his wishes for the increased appeasement that is necessary for encouraging initiatives, the avoidance of hasty legal reforms, as well as shifting away from sanctions against companies which play a key part in economic growth, and a return to a more neutral jurisprudence. On the future of the legal profession, he comments, in particular, on the increased role of artificial intelligence at the heart of this evolution, along with the decline of litigation and rise of mediation facilitated by a growing “online” practice.
