Invest In Law is delighted to announce that Slater & Gordon has subscribed to its service.

Invest In Law knows the law firms for sale through its unrivalled access to disposal mandates, and has become the first point of contact for anyone wanting to acquire or sell a law firm in the UK.

Subscribing allows acquirers access to the extensive list of law firms that are genuinely seeking a disposal or merger into a larger firm. Ben Holmes, managing director of Invest In Law, said: “Our subscription service has become an excellent resource for law firms with an acquisition strategy.”

He added: “Our model brings benefits to both acquirers and sellers, in what was once quite an opaque process of finding a suitable successor.”

Acquirers are attracted by the ease of searching online for firms for sale by turnover, location and work type. They can then see a brief description of the firm and express their interest online. Subscribers are also notified automatically when a new firm lists for sale that matches their search criteria, to ensure no opportunity is missed.

Law firms are attracted to list themselves for sale with Invest In Law as it is anonymous and free for them. Only once firms are comfortable revealing their names under non-disclosure agreement are talks opened.

The subscription fee acquirers pay also ensures it is only firms that are serious about their acquisition strategy that are introduced to the seller. Ben Holmes would welcome any firm considering its future to get in touch.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
