BSN City Group Newsletter – August 2013
Bloomberg TV – Smarter vs. Zero Sum Game behaviour
You may recall we recently shared with you a news item on legal business development which was broadcast on Bloomberg TV, featuring an interview with Trevor Faure, Global Leader & Partner, Legal Services with Ernst & Young. In a recent follow-up Bloomberg TV interview, Trevor Faure provides further thought leadership for legal business development in the current market. A synopsis of this news item is set out below, followed by a link to the full interview:
Legal Departments are facing the “perfect storm” of increasing legal coverage, compliance and client satisfaction whilst minimising headcount and cost. Modern techniques of disaggregation, data analytics and, more profoundly, addressing the zero sum dysfunctionality between law firms and clients are smarter ways of addressing these unique challenges.
Please do let us know if you have any feedback, suggestions or information (including job opportunities) that you wish to share with us and/or fellow City lawyers.
We will keep you informed of our upcoming events, which resume in the Autumn 2013, and news and information of specific interest to our members.
