Like most law firms, your organisation is likely to be in a form of transition - as your business model adapts to the changing legal sector. Not only are clients expecting ‘better, faster, cheaper’, but deregulation and technology advances have also allowed new competitors to enter the market. 

Much of the lower value, high volume and repetitive transactions that law firms undertake are being commoditised, impacting both revenue and profit. In order to compete, you need to improve practice efficiency, develop your areas of specialisation, introduce new service lines and find creative ways to improve your overall client experience.

Often confused, the word ‘innovation’ means different things to different people. But generally it’s a byword for the process of transformation that firms need to go through to move their practice forward. Whether you’re on this journey already or want to get started, examples of how other firms are innovating - along with best practice approaches and lessons learned - are truly invaluable.

So why not join us on our Legal Innovation Roadshow? We'll be visiting various law societies across the UK to help law firms "kick-start" their innovation programmes.

You'll find a full list of dates and venues below, as well as further details on the agenda and our expert speakers.
