Jennings: The next generation of leaders are not just reacting to change but anticipating and leading it

Personal injury specialists Jigsaw Law won the law firm of the year award in the recent 360 Legal Group Awards 2014. The award was sponsored by pricing and costs consultants Burcher Jennings, whose chief executive Martyn Jennings was impressed by the winners and by the overall standard of entries.

Martyn Jennings, CEO of pricing and costs consultants Burcher Jennings, sponsors of 360 Legal Awards law firm of the year said:

“Over the last decade it has become increasingly tough to succeed in the legal sector. Regulation has become more demanding and more expensive.

“Competition has increased, with multiple online and offline challenges to traditional firms. Expectations of clients also have risen, especially in terms of customer care.  Jigsaw Law, and many of the shortlisted entrants have embraced these changes, invested in understanding their clients’ needs and technological and marketing solutions to help meet them.

“Burcher Jennings itself was created to help firms adapt to the changing legal services environment, to help law firms accurately manage costs and develop effective pricing strategies.  Our work brings us into contact with many lawyers and it’s clear that the next generation of leaders are not just reacting to change but anticipating and leading it.

“The 360 Legal Awards were a celebration of the UK legal sector’s positive future prospects.”

Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
