Print This Post

8 December 2011


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 summit costs £199 + VAT (free for 360 Legal Group members) and is accredited for 6 hours of SRA CPD.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
