Chris Jeffrey of Thomson Reuters argued that To stand out from the crowd and win new work, lawyers need to be good at more than the law …”

Topics discussed at the roundtable affecting the legal profession included:

  •  the state of the legal market
  • preparing for uncertainty
  • recruitment opportunities
  • expanding beyond the law
  • giving clients what they want
  • how much of a hindrance is a partnership structure?
  • differentiating one’s self

In terms of Sherrards’ differentiation, Paul Marmor, Head of Litigation and International Services, commented that: “We have found that there has been interest from foreign companies coming to the UK looking for bargains following Brexit.  Particularly in China, we have seen some real interest in UK business and in the UK property market.”
