A merger and consolidation summit taking place in London on 6 February will help law firms to consider their strategy and develop a clear vision of what the future holds for their practice. Organised by Legal Futures Associate 360 Legal Group, the summit will explore the various options open to firms as the legal sector undergoes significant change:

  • Staying as you are – doing nothing
  • Restructuring your practice
  • Alternative Business Structures – regulation and opportunity
  • Growth by merger/acquisition
  • Getting your capital out of the firm
  • Grooming your firm for sale – does your practice have any value?
  • How to reap the benefits of merger

Additonal topics covered include: understanding corporate structures, succession and exit strategies, growth by merging, post-merger integration, buying a legal franchise, competing with new entrants, online documentation and funding your strategy.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
