The Law Management Section (LMS) annual benchmarking survey is widely regarded as the leading annual health check report for medium-sized firms. With over 165 firms responding, the survey contains detailed data essential for rigorous evidence-based decisions.

The survey shows a general increase in profitability resulting from a combination of increased income and continued control over spending. It also reveals that a greater number of practices have converted to a limited company or LLP.

As a unique source of data that is essential for rigorous evidence-based decisions, the Financial Benchmarking Survey 2013 will help you to look at your firm's financial performance objectively and to plan your strategy effectively.

New to this edition is a chapter on financial stability and the key challenges to firms in the future. The survey also covers areas including:

  • fee income
  • interest receivable
  • the ratio of fee earners to equity partners
  • the future of the legal profession.

Now in its fourteenth year, the survey is produced in association with Hazlewoods LLP andsponsored by Lloyds Bank.
