Issue 6 - January 2018 
Welcome to the first edition of 2018.
With the last chocolates and cheese of the festive season consumed, the wheels of commerce are now motoring away in a new year, and as ever we look at issues surrounding the world of solicitors and perhaps give you some tips and insights as you get your firm in shape for the challenges of the next 12 months.

This month we look at the media invention - Divorce Day, and how law firms should approach dealing with the sensitive subject of marriage break-up.    

Also, as we all look to improve in 2018, we share a fascinating talk about how to overcome the debilitating condition of procrastination to get more done - a New Year resolution all of us should try and implement.
Finally, we talk candidly about the unregulated sector and how legal clients perceive it, giving something to mull over as competition amongst law firms increases.
Keeping it short and sweet as ever, we hope you feel educated and inspired with this month’s offering.

Why it’s so important to keep an eye on the unregulated

In a changing world, it can be worth ruminating on how some solicitors look outside legal circles to get a better understanding of the thoughts of potential customers.
As a business, which is on the outside looking in, working with law firms, but not being lawyers, we have a different lens on the many obstacles preventing good legal providers from growing their firms.
Many of the issues could be solved by solicitors just taking time out to really understand their potential marketplace and the other legal providers within it.
For instance, it is clear to us as legal communication specialists that the majority of the public are blissfully unaware of unregulated legal services and others are just, well - ambivalent.
