Print This Post

10 June 2011


Legal Futures Associate Byfield Consultancy, in association with public affairs specialists HJCL, is hosting an early evening workshop event entitled ‘The Big Bang: Navigating the new legal order’.

The event will examine how law firms can best face the communications and regulatory challenges accompanying the implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007.

From October 2011 we shall see new entrants into the legal market, important changes in how legal services are procured and greater competition as a result. Law firms will need to decide how to adapt to the changing landscape in order to meet the challenges and opportunities that will soon become apparent.

The Byfield/HJCL event will feature:

  • A presentation on legal services regulatory landscape, forthcoming changes and how it will impact on the traditional legal services;
  • SWOT analysis of the reforms;
  • A brainstorm on utilising the new deregulated landscape;
  • An overview of communication techniques that will be used by new entrants to the market; and
  • Top tips on responding to government consultations.

Following the presentations there will be a Q&A session, followed by networking and refreshments.

The workshop is on Thursday 30 June at 6pm at The Law Society, Chancery Lane, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL.

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.
