Most law firms will always be stuck with the low level motor claims. Unfortunately, only the insurance lawyers from big firms get to do the high-value work. The smaller firms just contend with motor claims.

It is worse for the Plaintiff-side NIMA, doing lots of work with little legal costs. And clients are known to be very nasty and stingy.

Whatís new? With AI and automation, all these will be gone in another decade.
Maybe even faster.
Thatís why already said, only FAANG, or those high level work like US securities law for capital raising in developing countries is the way to go.
The rest? You wanna fight with Wachtell, etc?
No chance
