Zecter 200Zecter Group Ltd has seen strong demand for its consultancy services throughout its first year of trading. Focused on providing consultancy services to law firms, the business has seen an increasing number of organisations seeking advice, support and additionally, exploring opportunities on a range of current and future market changes.

Interestingly, demand has come from firms servicing a range of disciplines rather than one segment of the legal market.

Mark Smith, CEO of Zecter commented, “As a result of the uncertainty in the legal market, Zecter has been advising and working with a range of law firms on the delivery of strategy, planning, organisational structure, cost savings and efficiency gains, change management, technology, M&A and other financial matters.

“Zecter’s strength is its multi-disciplinary team of experts who are able to advise and support firms on the delivery of change by utilising their wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure future business models are robust in light of the challenges ahead.”

Joe Simpson, chairman of Zecter, said “It is encouraging to see law firms engaging with us and recognising the significance of change and innovation in the legal sector. Over the last few years we have seen increasing uncertainty and constant change and we expect this trend to become an ongoing feature of the legal market.”

Simpson continues “Law firms are set to face growing pressure in the next few years from a fundamental shift in their business models including technology, buyer behaviour and competition. The early innovators, adopters and those open to change are likely to be the long term winners in this market.”

The growth in the number of firms seeking professional advice and support in relation to the delivery of change has led to Zecter increasing its team of consultants by 50% in 2015. The business estimates that the growth in new hires will continue in 2016 and is already planning a number of vertical acquisitions to strengthen the offering to clients following strong demand.

Rethinking ‘quality versus quantity’

Andrew Lloyd 2017

The ‘quality versus quantity’ discussion has been prevalent in conveyancing firms for as long as I can remember. Sacrifice one to achieve the other is the common perception – but should we really see these elements as mutually exclusive? According to the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement, the UK lags behind the US and Germany by some 30 percentage points when it comes to productivity, meaning a German worker takes four days to produce what a British worker does in five.
