Marketplace Analysis

Management and leadership strategies have come under scrutiny in recent times as existing law firm models are put to the test. High-profile failures, global mergers and increasing pressure on fees have sparked discussions of how law firms ought to be run in the 21st century.

This means looking at enforcement issues first, before signing the contract and certainly before beginning to spend money on arbitration or other court proceedings."
