27 July 2016


Concert Networks New 200Concert Network’s annual research into how legal firms communicate with their clients is now available.

As with previous years, Concert called some of the UK’s leading law firms with the intention of instructing them. The goal was to find out how legal firms communicate with potential clients.

Some headlines from their findings are:

Only 2% of calls were followed up by the firm, asking if we wanted to proceed with our enquiry.

Only 46% of calls were put through to someone who could help us immediately.

Only one call, out of ninety attempted, received a perfect ranking from our assessors.

You can read the full findings by downloading The Legal Services Communication Report 2016 now.

The report contains valuable insights for all legal services firms. Just one or two small changes to how you communicate with prospective clients can see you stand out from the crowd.

In today’s crowded legal market, can you afford not to make those changes?

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
