The report, produced annually, in conjunction with members and stakeholders, has become widely used in core briefing for Ministers, the judiciary and others for international activities. It is also as a one-stop shop for information related to the sector and is frequently referenced in a range of legal related submissions HM Government.

TheCityUK is focused on ensuring the continued international competitiveness of the UK’s legal services sector, which involves assessing and responding to events which have the potential to impact on the sector. Our Legal Services 2017 report underscores the strengths of English law and UK legal services, as well as the UK’s continuing position as the leading global centre for the provision of international legal services and dispute resolution.

In addition, the report presents key data, analysis and insight to bring into sharp focus the value of the legal services sector to the UK economy, illustrating clusters of expertise throughout the UK. It also underscores the vital role law plays in underpinning and enabling the business of doing business.

This event will be an opportunity to consider the report’s key findings.
