Readers of Legal Futures have been offered discounted tickets to the 360 Legal Group Annual Conference and Awards Dinner on 6/7 October at the Belfry, near Birmingham. To claim the discount LF readers should book here using the promotional code LF11 .

This year’s 360 Legal Group conference is based on the theme of ‘Who Dares Wins’. 2011 is the year legal services change forever and a brave new dawn awaits those with enough courage and stamina to accept the challenges ahead and dare to win through the current uncertainty.

How does a law firm maintain its independent status and prosper with all these new entrants about to enter the legal market? How will firms dare to consolidate within their geographical areas and win by utilising the obvious economies of scale? How will legal services be delivered and by whom?

These are all searching questions and 360 Legal Group is dedicated to help find the solutions to these and the many other challenges facing the profession. The conference has been built around the skills and methods required for you to lead your practice into this highly competitive marketplace. It is relevant for all law firms whatever their size, from top 100 to progressive sole practitioners.

It may well be that you are a successful practice looking to grow by merger and acquisition. You could be focused on providing publicly funded services and find that bridging the gap between legal aid and hourly charges a step too far; you could well be a regional firm looking for inspiration; you could be considering how to exit and plan for your succession or looking at an alternative business structure. If you are serious about implementing change management and becoming a highly successful practice in the future then it is essential that you and your fellow partners attend the 360 Conference 2011.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
