Lawyer2Lawyer: The Economy’s Effect on UK Law Firms

This week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer:

The failing economy is having an impact on law firms, and not just in the U.S. Firms are cutting staff and scrapping bonuses — and some law firms are even collapsing. Across the pond in the UK, law firms are facing similar troubles. Law.com bloggers and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi, welcome guests Ronnie Fox, principal of the London law firm Fox, and Jonathan Fagan, solicitor and managing director of Ten Percent Legal Recruitment, with offices in London and Llanferres, to talk about how the present economic crisis is affecting firms in Britain. They discuss the obstacles that UK law firms face and what needs to be done to get through these hard times.

    Found the podcast interesting and informative. Didn’t spot until the end that it was recorded in Dec 2008. Sadly comments appear highly relevant to the current UK legal industry.

  • Enjoyed this podcast and much of it still relevant in today’s economic climate. It would be great if you could so another similar podcast to get people’s opinions of the effect of the ongoing recession on law firms today.
