WHAT'S INSIDE?

ISSUE IN BRIEF

Law firms, famously, are people businesses. That always used to refer to the fee earners – but not any more. Business services people are the new stars of legal, in our opinion – so for this issue we asked our community who they thought represented legal business services brilliance. I hope you enjoy reading the results.

Those we’ve featured represent, to me, business services people at their best: they understand the challenges law firms face, they’re meeting those challenges head-on, and they’re more clued into how competitive the near- to mid-term future is going to be than many, if not most, law firm partners.
