ISSUE IN BRIEF

Why are law firms now looking outside of legal for business? Are complementary services only a fad or are they the new future for the legal industry?

We get a deep look into the finer details of managing legal process mapping, opinions on whether business services should be encouraged to contribute to innovation, and why firms need to be investing further to make a stronger mark on diversity.

We hear industry views from Thomson Reuters Elite on the case for cloud, Invest Newcastle on how the city has talent for the taking, Hogan Lovells on the scope of automation opportunity with Contract Express from Thomson Reuters, and Peppermint Technology on why now is the time for cloud.

Legal is spinning out ever more services – consultancies in diversity and inclusion, innovation and cybersecurity are just a few to pop up to play. Are law firms now anybody’s business? Kayli Olson reports

TEAM PROFILE

Moore Blatch recently tipped into the largest 100 UK law firms by revenue for the first time – and its business services team also looks to be in the ascendant, finds Richard Brent

BRAIN TRAINING

Priya Lele, legal project management lead, corporate, at Herbert Smith Freehills, breaks down the increasingly in-demand art (but not martial art) of legal process mapping
