In brief: Association fights for future of small firms

A new association designed to ensure a future for small law firms was officially launched earlier this month. More than 100 sole practitioners and solicitors at small firms met for the Solicitors' Chambers Association meeting – “Forum for the Future” – where the group was formed. Association chair, Neil Davidson, said: “I will, with your support, work to ensure that small firms can, through solicitors' chambers, continue to provide… the one-to-one client relationship.”
