We’re incredibly excited to bring you our first ever Shape of The Industry Report: UK Law Firms 2022

Traditionally, pioneering online strategy, modern websites and law firms aren’t something that has been synonymous with each other. As client demands have changed and recent research into the requirements for law firms to be more transparent with pricing and trust signals, there’s never been a more important time for firms to get their website up to scratch. We wanted to highlight the common issues holding most firms back and demonstrate how even small changes can go a long way.
