9th Annual Survey of Irish Law Firms
This is our 9th annual survey of law firms in Ireland but this edition comes amid a worldwide pandemic. The resulting economic crisis has forced firms to adapt at speed, putting in place strategies to manage and mitigate the effects of repeated business disruption. Our report shows that most have maintained service levels to clients but only a fraction have been able to sustain revenues at pre-pandemic levels.

Post Brexit - where are we now?
