Deloitte has opened a legal business services practice in the U.S., expanding a line of business it has offered abroad.

The new practice will offer legal management consulting and managed services to help legal departments, but Deloitte won’t be turning into a law firm. The firm emphasized that it won’t be practicing law or offering legal advice to clients.

The U.S. launch is part of Deloitte’s effort to expand legal services internationally. Other Big Four firms such as PwC, KPMG and EY have also been expanding their legal services abroad and to some extent in the U.S. Deloitte is also facing competition from Andersen Global, the revived Arthur Andersen network, which has expanded from tax services into legal services, striking deals with both tax and law firms around the world.

To use the words of prophet and frequent convention attendee Hunter S. Thompson, when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. This year, the professional weirdness of Comic-Con has taken a twist, as the four-day event will take place exclusively online.

To their credit, organizers are trying to replicate the commercialized fan-friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center as much as possible: there is the traditional souvenir book featuring a pretty sweet drawing of Ray Bradbury on a T. Rex on the cover that is available for free .pdf download (and featuring click-through advertisements!), and you can print your own badge (sponsored by Amazon Prime Video!) to wear as you sit in front of your screen at home. The Comic-Con homepage also will take you to an online Exhibit Hall, where there will be interactive exhibits and events offered by vendors.

There are literally hundreds of panels that … Read More
