Paradigm Shift Archive

In January 2012, the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin began featuring Ms. Martini’s column “Paradigm Shift,” which
focuses on different facets of the practice of law which have been impacted by the seismic changes in the
profession over the past several years, and the business context which drives both the legal profession and
professional service organizations as a whole.
