ISSUE IN BRIEF

It’s timely that we turn our attention to growth strategies for Briefing‘s big idea feature for this month. And I don’t only mean because of whirling rumours of a game-changing ‘three’way’ merger making waves as we pressed send on this edition. I don’t know whether it’s early post-Brexit jitters, but two reports have come out within a week that make for a rather mixed message about whether there’s a merger on your mind. Not all strategies are created equal. But if we can say anything, law firms – like the rest of us – seem to be living in uncertain times.

We hear from Linklaters, Irwin Mitchell, Baker & McKenzie, Warwick Business School, Ashurst Advance, Lewis Silkin and RPC

 

 

WHICH WAY TO GROW?

Legal business expansion options have never been more open – but that means considering the pitfalls as well as potential … whatever Brexit means

ADVANCE INTO BATTLE

In March 2016, Ashurst became the latest large firm to launch a new delivery model. But Ashurst Advance also promises a new approach to delivering innovation.

BETTER TOGETHER

Pressure to work efficiently and securely should encourage firms to adopt standardised support for growth plans where possible, says Eric Ruud at Thomson Reuters Legal Enterprise Solutions
