In its 24th annual law firm survey, produced in collaboration with The Lawyer, Smith & Williamson sought the opinions of more than 130 law firm senior UK executives to understand their current attitudes towards Brexit and the broader levels of business confidence in the market.

This barometer of the concerns and opportunities seen by senior industry figures has been running since 1995, providing insights into long-term trends. The clear messages coming out of this year’s survey show that law firms are continuing to fight for top talent in a competitive market but are increasingly confident about the opportunities available, despite the uncertainties ahead.
