F4L_logo_simple_CMYKIn response to the seismic changes that have hit the personal injury market over the past two years and the future challenges ahead, First4Lawyers has launched an annual benchmarking survey to gauge how PI firms are responding.

The short survey can be completed here in less than ten minutes and all answers are treated anonymously.

The survey seeks to draw a comprehensive picture of the market post-LASPO but also examine the wider impact of Alternative Business Structures and MedCo.

It also examines the impact of the changes on the clinical negligence market, examining how PI firms have approached entering the clinical negligence market and documenting the challenges they are facing.

The survey is open until 11th September and the results will be available on Legal Futures in the autumn.

For every completed survey, First4Lawyers will donate £1 to its charity of the year, Little Heroes, and one lucky entrant will win an Apple Watch.

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.
