Whether it’s through working with underserved communities, focusing on process or finding innovative ways to offer legal help to clients, the idea of new law is something that every law firm should be familiar with. It’s a concept that can have major impact on the future of a law firm and it’s an area that deserves a great deal of attention and planning from all those who are working in this field.
New laws are often a result of the need to address specific issues that the country faces. They can be as simple as making changes to how abortions are performed or as complex as police accountability and cutting or increasing taxes.
Laws related to these issues can make a huge difference in the lives of people across the country and the world. They can also affect the lives of businesses and the people who work within them.

The new law named after Carlos Moncayo, who died in a tragic workplace accident on a construction site in 2015, makes it a criminal offense for corporations to negligently, recklessly or intentionally cause the death or serious physical injury of workers at their sites. It also creates greater accountability for companies that violate worker safety laws and protects victims of these crimes from retaliation by the corporation’s management.
