Following PI Futures conference, First4Lawyers want to hear from you

We’ve had a positive response so far to our PI market confidence index following last week’s Legal Futures PI Futures Conference and there is still time to get your views in on the future of the evolving market. Our short online survey takes no longer than five minutes to complete and the results will be published in Legal Futures and on the First4Lawyers’ website shortly.

It was good to see so many people in the audience at Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry engaging in a positive debate around the market after an 18-month period of doom and gloom. Two things were clear: there’s yet more change to come but there remains a future for law firms and CMCs that focus on what they do best and accept change as the new norm.

We’d love to know how you’re faring in the current climate and how confident you are about the future, please click here to complete our short survey.
