Whenever anyone writes about the legal profession, they write about change. And for good reason. The industry is markedly different to how it was just a few years ago and there's more change afoot.
While any law firm recognises the ongoing need for change, many are unsure how to do it. In this season's Readit newsletter, discover how to react to evolving legislation, use technology to best commercial advantage, utilise free document management functionality, adopt an outsourcing model to operate leaner and integrate your core systems.
Plus, read about our latest CSR initiatives including charity fundraising, MS Society 'Employer of the Year 2016' award win and disabled employee support policies.
