By Rob MacAdam With clients expecting more efficiency, transparency and value from their lawyers, it’s time for law firms to re-engineer their legal service delivery into real competitive advantage. In this video, Rob MacAdam, Director of Legal Solutions, identifies six elements that make up the anatomy of a legal matter, and discusses what improvements can be […]

Updates on proportionality of costs in court proceedings

By Gwendoline Davies, Claire Acklam Anyone involved in the conduct of litigation will be aware that the ‘overriding objective’, at rule 1.1 (1) of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), requires cases to be dealt with “justly and at proportionate cost”. Unfortunately, the question of what is proportionate continues to cause confusion and dispute.  In this latest […]

Women on Boards – As they progress, businesses thrive

By Susana Almeida Lopes Women represent 50% of the working population and are as much or more educated and qualified as men are. However, the problem of gender diversity (or lack of it), especially in top positions in organisations, is a persistent societal problem, and there are (many) studies that, if concrete measures are not taken, […]

By Emma Lusty It is a common misconception that a franchise network with a high level of resales is a bad sign. In fact, a healthy resale market is a good sign.

Bevan Ashford rebuts bullying allegations

Bristol-based firm Bevan Ashford is facing a charge of constructive dismissal from a former marketing executive. The firm, which is well-known in the South West for its employment work, failed to stop “systematic bullying” in its marketing department by its former head Sarah Hall, according to Erica Hodkinson. Sources allege that Hall’s departure followed investigations […]

Risky business

While professional negligence claims can be a nightmare for accountants, brokers and solicitors, the legal roller coaster ride that ensues can offer rich pickings for chambers with nerves of steel. Fennella Quinn reports. To practise at the professional negligence bar is, in a sense, to ride a roller coaster. With every new catastrophe, economic boom […]

Gobsmacked over headline

I was somewhat surprised to see that I had “resigned” as head of chambers (The Lawyer, 20 March). I don’t think I have resigned from anything in my life. In this case I have had 25 years of success and pleasure, first at 19 Old Buildings and subsequently at 11 Stone Buildings and I felt […]
