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.
I refer to the response by Kevin Westwood in last week's The Lawyer (The law belongs to lawyers) to my letter on MDPs.

The only lawyers that will suffer from the advent of MDPs are those who do not have the vision to realise what is on offer and to lead from the front. It is not as though MDPs are not going to happen. This is a worldwide movement already in place.
