Legal Futures Associate Jures, a research company and think-tank dedicated to the legal services market, has been commissioned by a leading legal publishing company to undertake a survey amongst small law firms (five partners or fewer) aimed at identifying the main survival issues affecting high street practices.

Jures would be most grateful if solicitors would take part in this survey, which should take no more than five minutes to complete and is available here.

All responses to the survey shall be treated in the strictest confidence. As an incentive for completing the survey, Jures is offering respondents a free webinar worth 2 CPD points. If you are interested in taking-up this offer, please e-mail Grania@jures.co.uk separately and once you have completed the online survey.

If you have any questions, please call Grania on 01372 469705.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
