COVID-19 Disclaimer

Please note that this research was conducted during the period 27 February to 13 March 2020.

This was prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the subsequent disruption to “business as usual” for law firms in Australia. As such we recognise that the predictions and projections made for the next 12 months reported in this survey may radically differ from the answers we would gather if we were to ask the same questions post the Covid19 Pandemic outbreak in mid-late March 2020.

We stand by this research as being an accurate reflection of views held during February to early March 2020. The results of this survey need to be interpreted and applied with commercial caution, in particular, decisions relating to the performance and culture of your firm.
