27 November 2012


Redbrick Solutions have commissioned an extensive market research initiative which aims to lift the lid on the mood of the profession as the last tumultuous year draws to an end.

The survey, supported by Legal Futures, explores the impact of changes to the market; such as the introduction of ABS’s, increased regulation and new ways of attracting and winning clients; on both the law firm and the individual lawyer.

The research further looks to better understand attitudes to technology and the importance placed on technology by the law firm in planning for future prosperity.

The survey consists of 21 short questions, taking no longer than 5 minutes to complete and is open for a limited time until 5pm on the 17 December.  All participants will be entered into a prize draw to win an IPad (just in time for Christmas!).  Additionally all those who take part will be able to receive the full survey report, with highlights to be published with Legal Futures in the New Year.  All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence.

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.
