The clock is ticking. Next April, the Civil Liability Act reforms will come into force and change the face of personal injury practice forever.
In a world where RTA claims worth up to £5,000 are small claims and dealt with through a government portal that encourages people to do it themselves, what is the future for law firms for which this work has been their bread and butter?
This year’s PI Futures is focused on what the changes mean and how lawyers and others can respond. First, you need to know the current state of play – we will hear from all the key players about how the reforms are shaping up, including the latest on the new portal.
Then you need to know what you can do in the meantime – speakers will examine the current costs issues in PI, particularly after Herbert, as well as access to funding and the impact of the new discount rate.
Marketing and conversion – now and in the future – will remain core to the success of any practice, and our specialists will advise on the latest tactics to win the battle of the calls and clicks.
And finally you need to decide what the future is for your practice. We have assembled a panel of experts to help delegates understand the range of strategic responses to this time of unprecedented change.
Over the past eight years, PI Futures has become the go-to event for all those involved in advising and helping claimants. It has been a period of never-ending change, but the biggest and hardest change of all is now on the horizon.
This event sells out every year and we encourage you to book early to secure your place.
