Darwin was right: Bruce MacEwen explains why legal dinosaurs are dying

Adapt or die, writes Bruce MacEwen in this bookmark-worthy post:

"Despite the stupefying fact that The Wall Street Journal reported late last year that 45 percent of Americans believe "literally" in the Biblical story of Creation, whereas only 31 percent subscribe to the theory of evolution (have you thanked a teacher today?), Darwinian selection pressures are every bit as valid in economics-land as they are in biology-land.  I've talked about this before in the context of the structure of the law firm market, but now IP Law & Business talks about it specifically in the context of the landscape for IP boutique firms ..."

MacEwen's case en pointe: "10-year-old Lee & Hayes, a 25-lawyer patent firm improbably based in Spokane, Wash., with clients you've actually heard of including Microsoft, HP, GE, BellSouth and Qualcomm."

How? Read on. MacEwen's open to your comments.
