The changing landscape of the legal sector

 

The need to do more with less and deliver organic growth isn’t a new phenomenon. But, in an increasingly accessible global market with more competition than ever, this becomes more vital.

 

Are you missing simple solutions that could help transform your firm? Controlling costs and investment in IT and communications services is integral to gaining a competitive advantage, but how does your firm address the key challenges today head-on?

 

Specific challenges for legal sector organisations

While legal firms have much in common with other professional services firms, there are specific challenges and requirements that apply to the legal sector, such as:

  • Changing fee structures and billable hours
  • Increased competition from alternative business structures
  • Adherance to compliance and regulatory policies
  • Demise of Legal Aid
  • Outsourcing of volume tasks
