This first Legal Futures Special Report, in association with Thomson Reuters, examines the changing face of City law firms. It demonstrates how far City law firms have moved in a relatively short period of time, mainly (but not exclusively) in response to the recession and the demands of their clients.

Many are coming up with a range of tactical and strategic responses to the challenges they face, while a smaller number are rethinking the way they do business, and the value and service they provide to clients. Through interviews with leading figures in the City, and a roundtable debate between representatives of the new entrants to the market and traditional big firms, this Special Report shows how innovation is as much part of the City’s story as it is the rest of the profession’s in the ABS era.
