The Evolution of Law Firms

I’ve written before that in my view, it’s never been easier to start a new firm, and I truly believe that. However, if I was starting a Law Firm in the UK today, the “type” of law firm I could start is less clear. There are a number of different ways you could start a firm, and of course a number of different ways you can take an existing firm.

I’ve been a lawyer for over 20 years.

It’s good to talk.

The days are long gone when all it took for a law firm to secure more business was to be good at legal work. Yes a lawyer in today’s climate needs to be a damn good lawyer first and foremost, but they also need to be business savvy and be an innovative marketeer.

Law firm leaders face critical decisions in a legal services marketplace that is consolidating and changing rapidly.

The Changing Face of Law Firm Marketing – Part 2

In my last post I reached the conclusion that the process by which lawyers engage with their clients is changing.
