Powerful Quotes by Doug Kaminski

  • The days of just “butts in seats” and hiring of FTEs as you need them, usually when it reaches critical mass—[law firms are] looking at things a little differently now. That’s one of the benefits of COVID: Can we do things remotely? Can we do it fractionally with an ALSP, with somebody else that has this expertise, and hire as needed?
  • How do we guide clients better, keeping in mind that it’s not just a data issue? And maybe it’s not just a people issue. Sometimes it is just the way you look at that thorny problem and find new ways to resolve it.
  • I don’t like the word “disruption” because, honestly, it’s about “alignment”. There has been a disconnect [between law firms and clients] for a while.
  • Stop looking at this as a document and data problem and start looking at it more as a content issue. How do we better classify and better understand data?
