Times Online reported that a major UK law firm had opened up its virtual office in Second Life. On 23 April 2007, Field Fisher Waterhouseannounced that it had set up its office in this 5 million strong online community.There is already a thriving Second Life economy, with its own currency known as Linden Dollar (L$). This has already led to Second Life’s first real-life millionaire.
This has attracted multinational companies such as IBM, Nike, ABN Amro to set up shop in Second Life. Therefore, it seems only logical for law firms and accounting firms to follow suit.
