Abstract

An analysis of how large law firms became part of the globalization process at the end of the 20th century. The paper looks at how globalization and culture influence each other and how professional services are treated. It examines what law firms do in globalization and how the rise of the MDP was initially perceived as a challenge to the hegemony of the law firm. The paper has an enduring interest as the UK Clementi review of legal services revives many of the hopes and fears present at that time.

Keywords: Globalization, lawyers, MDP, legal profession
