The lot of the law firm leader is not always a happy one. This week’s cover feature unpicks that statement a little.

Has there ever been a time of more change among the top levels of law firm management? Not that we can remember, anyway.
A huge thanks to everyone who made it down to The Lawyer Management Conference yesterday, which focused on all things disaggregated. It was simply a cracking day, with some of the market’s leading thinkers and trailblazers providing practical and indispensable insights into the future of the legal market.
