What's in this month's issue?
Feature: Are law firms staying market-relevant when it comes to technology? LPM takes a look at tech progress in SMEs – and how they may not be as far behind big law as many think. Including views from leaders at Ashton KCJ, Hawkins Family Law, JB Leitch, Bowden Jones, Hodge Jones & Allen, and Aberdein Considine.
Practice Makes Perfect: Digital marketing and graphic design man Mark Slater at Bolton's Asons Solicitors talks new-look legal businesses for a digitising legal market.
The columnists: Introducing Jane Pritchard, systems and BD manager at TV Edwards, on transferring skills from legal to helping the community; Geraldine Collier, finance and practice manager at Dawson Cornwell, argues the side for non-lawyer COLPs; The File Queen Natasha Rawley of ADDS returns with a new tool to make information governance easy; Jitendra Valera of Advanced Legal, on knowing the best time to upgrade your technology; and Janine Parker of Paragon on new developments in the PI insurance market.
In practice: Rob Adams of Anthony Collins reviews The Reinventors, and finds out how it may (or may not) apply to legal; HR Agony Aunt Polly Jeanneret talks stressed-out trainers, failed probation and new year's resolutions (for 2016); Your View on whether the Clementi report and the Legal Services Act have delivered; plus our monthly recap of the news, reports and research that matter.
Industry views: Jeremy Stillman of Konica Minolta on how SMEs building better practices and unifying content early stand to benefit as they grow; Peter Alderson of LDF on the changed lending landscape – and how firms thinking differently about financing agility can grow; and Gwen Philippou of Nicholas & Co talks modernising the firm's dictation tech and empowering the firm's people with BigHand.
