This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Co-operation, not competition, has been part of the valued and strong working relationship between The Solicitors Pro Bono Group (SPBG) and the Bar Pro Bono Unit since the SPBG was formed 18 months ago (The Lawyer, 22 March).
Of course, differences between the two sides of the profession will affect how and when pro bono work can be undertaken - for example the majority of individual solicitors will need the consent of their firms. But the issue is not one of competition. The issue is instead for the profession collectively to continue to develop its role in responding to unmet legal need.
