new-mmalogo-page-001200mmadigital, the online marketing agency for law firms, is again teaming up with NatWest Commercial Banking, to host the bank’s fifth legal sector conference, across five UK locations.

The NatWest Legal Sector Conference, in association with mmadigital, will examine how law firms can:

  • exploit new channels to market
  • improve profitability and partner performance
  • deliver business strategy via alternative funding structures.

The conference panel of experienced speakers will offer practical advice to help law firm leaders navigate the current trading environment and include: Colum Smith, CEO, McMillan Williams Solicitors; Peter Scott, a former managing partner at Eversheds; Dez Derry, CEO, mmadigital; and Stephen Gold, founder of Gold’s Solicitors (now Irwin Mitchell).

Steve Arundale, head of professionals at NatWest, says: “Over the past five years this conference has grown in influence and during that period the trading environment for legal businesses has never been as good as it is right now.

“With many firms experiencing improved financial performance, we will examine how firms should now look forward and employ the current period of stability to secure a positive future. We’re naturally delighted to be working with mmadigital again.”

Bitcoin: The new frontier or the next bubble?

Joe Smith Saunderson House

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency – a digital currency that uses cryptographic techniques to regulate the generation of units and to verify the transfer of funds. It is largely anonymous and unregulated, and underpinned by a digital ledger technology known as blockchain. In terms of the market, there is a limit of 21m Bitcoin that can ever be created. It is very narrowly held, with an estimated 40% of Bitcoin held by just 1,000 ‘investors’ and only a third having been traded in the last year. However, there are also a number of synthetic products through which one can gain access to Bitcoin, including contracts for difference, ETFs (exchange-traded funds) and, as of December, exchange-traded futures.
