“We’re experiencing an extremely challenging period within the legal sector.  Law firms can no longer adopt a passive approach to business development, expecting reputation and location to deliver a regular stream of work.  Success and thereby survival will require strong leadership, a sharp focus on business direction and a thorough understanding of and ability to consistently satisfy clients’ needs.” David Laud
