May 21, 2013 12:16 pm

The legal sector is evolving rapidly and understanding how that affects you, your firm and your clients is of great importance but it’s not always easy.

Legal Futures is the leading independent news resource reporting on the fast-evolving legal landscape, with daily news on alternative business structures, new market entrants, regulatory change and innovation in all its forms. Its unique blend of hard-hitting journalism, market intelligence and expert analysis makes it the first port of call for anyone interested in keeping pace with the transformation of the legal market. Free to users, with no payment walls or registration required, Legal Futures breaks important news stories on a weekly basis.

There is also a free weekly e-newsletter and if you want to discuss the news further you can join the conversation with hundreds of other like-minded colleagues at the Legal Futures Discussion Forum on LinkedIn.


Legal Futures has also led the way with conferences on the new legal market, enabling delegates to hear from and network with industry leaders, ABS entrepreneurs and legal sector innovators, using their in-depth knowledge of the legal market to introduce speakers and perspectives that you may not have heard before. The most recent  conference  –  ‘The LEX Factor – who will be the ABS winners?’ Took place on 6 June in London and was a huge success. Delegates heard from solicitor-turned-entrepeneur Sahar Hashemi, the founder of Coffee Republic, as well as the law firms responding to market change and the next generation of ABSs and new entrants.

Established by leading legal journalist Neil Rose in 2010, Legal Futures has gone from strength to strength. Its recent shortlisting for the Halsbury Legal Journalism Award 2013 tops an excellent year in which the number of unique visitors has grown by nearly 50% year on year, and by 121% including readers of Litigation Futures, a sister site dedicated to costs, funding and the Jackson reforms, which launched in July 2012. Between the two sites they now have 50,000 readers a month, a great achievement for an independent business without a large publishing company or institution behind it.

Widely respected and well read by industry experts, Legal Futures has become the go-to source of information on the new legal market. Professor Richard Susskind, author of The End of Lawyers? and Tomorrow’s Lawyers says: “Legal Futures is my first port of call whenever I need insight into any aspect of liberalisation. In my view, it is the definitive resource for anyone seeking to keep pace with structural changes in the legal profession.”

Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating so sign up for the Legal Futures e-newsletter today.
