Best Legal Advisers Report 2017: Minding the gap – quality matters

innovative-idea-shutterstock-235561192Commercial law firms are under more pressure than ever to modernise the service they offer. Alongside the ever-present demands for top quality legal advice, key considerations such as innovation, communication, responsiveness, value, consistency and business acumen are all high on the agenda for forward-thinking firms.

Of course, the key question is whether law firms' efforts are resonating with clients. In the 2016 Best Legal Advisers Report, we asked 761 GCs, in-house lawyers and senior execs at top UK and international companies to rate the importance of 14 criteria covering all aspects of legal advice provision. Overall, respondents provided feedback on 40+ global law firms and 20 ranked as 'Best Legal Advisers'.

This online hub will bring together news, features and opinion on these issues, as well as profiles of the top-performing law firms and partners in the Best Legal Advisers Report, which will be published in December 2017. For more information, email or call her on +44 (0)758 425 8635.
