The UK legal sector grew at the “phenomenal” rate of 8% last year and is worth almost £26 billion, according to research commissioned by the Law Society.
This headline masks the changing face of legal services and the demand for more efficient ways of working.
New market entrants, demands from project management savvy clients and the shift to alternative fee arrangements, in particular fixed fees, all necessitate change in the industry.
Those who embrace this change will succeed, whereas firms that fail to equip themselves for the challenge will undoubtedly suffer.
We are recognised leaders in delivering customised, practical project management training for clients across many different industries. Our customised courses enable subject matter experts to benefit from practical tools & techniques grounded in best practice project management.
The rapidly growing interest in project management from the legal profession has resulted in Wellingtone working with a number of industry leaders in the last few years including Ince & Co, Stephenson Harwood, DLA Piper, Farley Williams and The University of Law.
This has culminated in us being able to offer a customised course specifically designed for lawyers and other legal industry professionals.
