The results that matter

Today we’re talking results. First up, there’s still time to enter this year’s The Lawyer Management awards – don’t miss out on the chance to win one of the year’s biggest prizes for operational excellence. This is every firm’s chance to acknowledge all the hard work being done by the members of their business support teams, which right now largely equates to finance professionals, if the plethora of financial results is anything to judge by.
