This week, The Legal 500 – one of the leading legal directories – published its findings for this year. Capital ranked highly in the league tables.
As Chris Nott, our Senior Partner, writes in The Legal 500’s supplement, it’s an exciting and challenging time for lawyers in Wales.
There’s a lot of commercial activity in the strengthening Welsh and UK economy, with many larger firms reporting record results, while slashed state funding has created turmoil amongst the law-firms who serve the public. The legal sector is ripe for the adoption of new technologies, but will that boost the sector or take away lawyers’ jobs? Then there’s Brexit. This could become the gift that keeps on giving, as clients need lawyers’ help to grapple with the effects and the new laws that will implement it. Or it could cause the wider economy to contract and put our clients off doing deals. There’s also the question of LegalTech – and whether it’ll replace lawyers, or support and supplement them.
