Jennings: The next generation of leaders are not just reacting to change but anticipating and leading it

Personal injury specialists Jigsaw Law won the law firm of the year award in the recent 360 Legal Group Awards 2014. The award was sponsored by pricing and costs consultants Burcher Jennings, whose chief executive Martyn Jennings was impressed by the winners and by the overall standard of entries.

Martyn Jennings, CEO of pricing and costs consultants Burcher Jennings, sponsors of 360 Legal Awards law firm of the year said:

“Over the last decade it has become increasingly tough to succeed in the legal sector. Regulation has become more demanding and more expensive.

“Competition has increased, with multiple online and offline challenges to traditional firms. Expectations of clients also have risen, especially in terms of customer care.  Jigsaw Law, and many of the shortlisted entrants have embraced these changes, invested in understanding their clients’ needs and technological and marketing solutions to help meet them.

“Burcher Jennings itself was created to help firms adapt to the changing legal services environment, to help law firms accurately manage costs and develop effective pricing strategies.  Our work brings us into contact with many lawyers and it’s clear that the next generation of leaders are not just reacting to change but anticipating and leading it.

“The 360 Legal Awards were a celebration of the UK legal sector’s positive future prospects.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
