ISSUE IN BRIEF

This issue marks Briefing’s fourth birthday, and over the last four years we’ve covered the changes in the legal market driven by the low-growth, consolidating environment firms find themselves in after the recession.

In this issue we analyse and discuss the pressures and the opportunities that legal businesses now face as they struggle to take market share from each other, and seek out growth and opportunity in existing and new markets. To that end we’ve asked general counsel as well as law firm management leaders for their views – a taste of the broadening of Briefing’s reach to come, and one I hope you like.
