Legal Futures Roundtable Report, in association with LexisNexis: The Value Proposition

Print This Post

4 November 2016


This Legal Futures roundtable report, published in association with LexisNexis, looks at what we call ‘the value proposition’ – how innovative firms have set upon a distinctive path and are ploughing them with vigour and success.

We gathered representatives of various firms around the table who show that it is not all about alternative business structures and radical ways of delivering legal services – it can also be about more subtle changes to form and focus that set firms out from the pack.

There is, of course, much to treasure in the traditions of the legal profession that have grown up over so many years, but there is equally no reason to preserve them in aspic.

We also tackled what LexisNexis’s Bellwether report earlier this year called ‘The riddle of perception’ – which showed that many lawyers do not know their clients quite as well as they think they do. The firms around the table showed that, however, some do.

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
