Research into the Changing Legal Landscape


The global legal industry is undergoing irreversible transformation - driven by a range of factors including customer demands for better value, a highly competitive market, rapidly evolving technology and changes to the way we work and live. ALPMA and LexisNexis are collaborating in ground-breaking research to track how Australasian law firms are adjusting their strategies and business models to adapt to the changing legal landscape and prepare themselves for a successful future.  

2015 Research: "Preparing Australasian Law for a Digital, Divergent, Differentiated Future"


The 2015 ALPMA/LexisNexis research investigated what changes (if any) Australasian law firms plan to make over the next three years to: the markets they serve; their resourcing mixmarketing and business development strategies; internal systems and processeslegal services delivery model and strategic relationships - in order to position themselves for a successful future.  Participation in this research is free and open to all Australasia law firms.

A broad range of law firms (147) from across Australia and New Zealand participated in the research conducted in July, sharing their plans for the markets they serve, their resourcing mix, marketing and business development strategies, internal systems and processes, legal services delivery model and strategic relationships over the next three years. 

According to the results, Australasian law firms are planning a multi-pronged attack to ensure they are ready for a digital, divergent and differentiated future – but many have a long way to go.  The research, launched at the 2015 ALPMA Summit, details the eight key strategies Australasian firms are adopting in order to respond to the changing legal landscape and position their firms for future success. 

The research results will provide your firm with greater insight into exactly what Australasian firms are doing to respond to the changing legal landscape - and help you develop and refine your firm's business strategy.
