The business megatrends law firms need to take onboard to thrive in 2020
How legal business is reinventing itself with greater resourcefulness
Supplier insight into managing with the tools of change
Professor Richard Scase on the transformation law firms can expect − whether they change their ways or not
The wheels of major change typically grind rathe slowly in legal. After much debate, partnership ownership restrictions finally fell away back in 2011 − yet only now has a UK law firm announced the time might be right to be first to float on the stock market.
One thing that might make them change a little faster is the new talent they need. In this edition, we turn to Professor Richard Scase, author, back in 2001, of Britain in 2010: The new business landscape, for some insight into ways the world of work is changing across the board. And one of his main megatrends is that millennials are already in charge of their own working destinies − with or without their employers onboard.
What’s in store for the law firm worker bees of tomorrow? Writer, academic, proven future-forecaster and this year’s Briefing Business Transformation conference keynote Professor Richard Scase lifts the lid on the drivers for change in the UK legal market
