This is genius on numerous levels.

1.) Smaller footprint = lower costs. No need for the 8,00 square feet in a class A building like your OLD firm had.
2.) Leveraging technology allows you to meet when and where the clients and prospects want to meet. Increasing client satisfaction AND lowering T&E.
3.) Gen Y!

Thank you Fidelity
