The ways in which legal services are delivered have expanded. In response to clients' increasing needs for end-to-end solutions, multidisciplinary practices (MDPs) are growing. 

In the first FLIP Buzzwords for 2021 on 24 February, our panellists delved into MDPs and how they provide a one-stop shop for clients by offering value-added and integrated services from both lawyers and non-lawyers. 

Our panellists addressed:

  • What is a multidisciplinary practice? 
  • Are non-lawyers within MDPs bound by the same ethics as lawyers?
  • Where do we draw the line between legal and non-legal work?
  • Will the current business models survive? 
  • How can you compete against MDPs? Do you need to consider building a whole new model, or acquire or join an existing practice?
  • Can collaboration with others in the legal supply chain allow you to focus on areas of expertise?

Watch now to get the buzz on MDPs.
