LPM magazine: Innovate to survive, June issue
LPM digs under the surface of innovation and change in SME legal – what are today's legal businesses doing in process, people and profitability to thrive and survive? Are firms incorporating? Becoming more diverse? Thinking differently about value-based delivery? We get the stories from leaders creating change on a daily basis, and how their people are meeting that challenge.
What's in this month's issue?
