With over 180,000 practicing solicitors as of July 2017, and a total of around 320,000 individuals supplying legal services in the UK, the legal sector is an important part of the UK economy. Currently generating a turnover of £28 billion, the Law Society predict it will grow to £31 billion by 2021, with the sector becoming increasingly competitive.

Many firms undertake active marketing campaigns to help them stand out but also survive in the market. Changes arising due to Brexit, legal aid funding, the ever-changing and increasing number of regulatory environments, as well as technological innovation, are all having a significant impact on legal firms growth and survival.
