One Response to “Further reading”

  1. I have read that with the implementation of the LSA, this will place the UK in the vanguard to promote global change in the legal services sector through the introduction of alternative business structures (ABS).

    As we know each jurisdiction has its own regulators and operating requirements for its legal practitioners.

    What is the general view on this? Or does the prospect flatter to deceive?

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
