  • The rate of change and the impact of the Legal Services Act will create huge opportunity and no doubt challenges.

    Having attended the recent legal futures conference "The Future of Lawyers" leading commentator Richard Susskind confirms that view that moving forward clients will continue to want "more for less" .
    Those chambers, regardless of size will be able to thrive by offering the cost effective solutions sought.
    In travelling around the country presenting "Managing Public Access" many chambers will be well placed to compete for work if they adapt and respond accordingly.

    In my view one of the biggest opportunities for the bar is the ability for clients to access barristers' services directly and where appropriate be able to refer work to law firms.

    "Quality" is key to our strategy to safeguard our market position, combined with a collaborative approach of attracting new business with law firms, other chambers and other stakeholders will create new work streams to retain
    competitive advantage.
    Size on this basis will come in many different forms and shapes, however, we as others on circuit will become "Leaders not Followers"
