Law firms who are setting their practices apart and succeeding in a challenging and changing marketplace through innovative thinking, strategic vision and staff and business development still have time to enter this year’s 360 Legal Group Awards.

360 Legal Group, a Legal Futures Associate which helps law firms manage and market their practices more successfully as businesses, is holding the awards for the second year to find and showcase practices of all sizes who are adapting to the difficult economic climate and fast changing trading conditions facing the legal profession.

This year there are five categories: law firm of the year, local law firm of the year, management team of the year, niche law firm of the year and most innovative marketing idea of the year.

Law firms have until noon on 28 September to submit their entry by e-mail. There is no limit on the number of awards a firm can apply for and no charge for entry, although entrants must be available to collect the award at a gala dinner taking place at The Belfry, near Birmingham, on 6 October.

“The theme of our conference and awards is ‘Who dares wins’ as they are targeted to law firms who are ready and willing to meet the many challenges facing them head on,” explains Viv Williams, chief executive of 360 Legal Group. “It has been predicted that as many as 3,000 high street law firms could disappear in the new legal landscape, yet there will also be a wealth of opportunities for those firms who are prepared to look to the future, forge a new vision for their firms and rethink and restructure their businesses.

“Our awards offer an opportunity for those pioneering law firms who are already adapting to be recognised and applauded.”

Details of the awards and the two-day conference at The Belfry can be found on the website www.360legalgroup.co.uk or are available by calling 01275 465540.

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
