We finally hit the Wall of Fame at the Perez Art Museum Miami. Eliot and I are thrilled even though the opposite wall has a list of the big donors.
Disrupting The Traditional Law Firm
I met Ben Wolkov on a recent trip to Mexico City. He is on the board of Fountainhead Residency, the art group Eliot and I belong to. Ben told me on the trip that his boutique law firm, AXS Law, was very progressive and cutting edge. For one thing, his offices are located in Wynwood, a warehouse district that is now filled with street art, art galleries, restaurants and small shops.
Secondly, while most of the attorneys at AXS Law came from big firms, they now love being a part of a modern business. No more formal, big wooden desks and piles and piles of paper files. The AXS firm is taking advantage of the digital age. Their offices are completely contemporary, glass walls, smaller desks, very little paper, community lounge areas, and rotating art work from Miami galleries.
Eliot and our friends, Gail and Dawn, and I went to an art reception at the AXS law offices last week. I snapped photos so you can see what law firms will look like in the future. Say goodbye to the stodgy, formal look that you are used to, and say hello to the world of minimalism and casual environments.
Don’t make any assumptions about the quality of the work. AXS believes their high energy decor and relaxed atmosphere, helps them win most of their cases.
