ABOUT THE BUSINESS OF LAW BLOG
Sole practitioners, independent lawyers and small law firms are under siege.
ABS, the SRA, the Law Society and Legal Ombudsman are ramping up the pressure – and all on top of the daily challenges and decisions that small businesses face: what level of personal indemnity insurance to take, why spend money on marketing, how to get clients and keep them coming back for more.
Who has the time to actually practice law?
This blog has been set up by experts, for experts. For lawyers to share knowledge with other lawyers about how to not just survive these more competitive times, but to thrive.
In time, we hope to build the definitive resource for Independent Lawyers. An online destination that can help us all do business better. What we like to call: a thrival guide for these troubled times.
We aim to cover advice, opinion and discussion about topics such as:
- Compliance and SRA regulation
- Complaints procedures
- Personal Indemnity Insurance: how much is enough?
- Marketing and networking – why bother?
- Business strategy
- Client retention
- Trend spotting
We need your help to make this vision a reality. Sign up to the Business of Law blog for free updates including the crucial monthly COLP Report as well as regular white papers, bellwether surveys and other helpful content – and we’ll work out how to thrive together in this new and shifting landscape.
