The LEX factor

June 2013: The LEX Factor

At this conference delegates heard from the pioneers hitting the headlines and glimpsed into the future of legal practice. The latest business models, financial strategies and routes to market were explored as well as hearing how business models outside of the legal sector could be transferred to create a thriving law firm. Over the last two years, all of the major figures in the post-Legal Services Act world have appeared at Legal Futures’ ground-breaking conferences on change and innovation in the legal sector. We continue to remain committed to giving the latest thinking and newest players a platform and this was no exception.

I enjoyed the event very much. Good to meet new people and catch up with so many colleagues. It was also great to hear so many good speakers.
