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.

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.
