Legal Industry in UK

Over the past year, the continuing impact of the global pandemic and the aftermath of Brexit has weighed heavily on the United Kingdom’s legal market, leaving law firms there to navigate their clients through uncharted waters such as how the move away from the European Union will affect the region and how best to manage evolving trade, labor, regulatory, and compliance landscapes in the new environment. Further, UK law firms are seeing the legal needs of their corporate clients shift and evolve as well, a process that started even before the pandemic crisis. Indeed, even as the pandemic crisis ebbs, law firms need to demonstrate new skills and levels of efficiency to meet clients’ increasing demands. A new report, State of the UK Legal Market 2022, from the Thomson Reuters Institute, examines the UK legal ecosystem and sees how many of the main trends and developments that occurred in 2021 were — not surprisingly — strongly client-centric and client-driven, from a move toward increased legal spending to what clients want to see from their external firms in terms of expertise, tech-savviness, and efficiency. In terms of legal spending, the report shows that the UK legal market is experiencing its highest level of spend optimism of the last five years. Indeed, the percentage of UK legal buyers saying they’re anticipating growth in their overall legal spend in the coming months saw a huge increase, especially in practice areas like regulatory. That means, the report advises, that UK law firms need to target their service offerings to clients to best address the areas in which clients are indicating they most need assistance in order to capture a larger share of this spending.
