RAPID LEGAL CHANGE IS UPON US, SO WE HAVE TO ADAPT-
WESTCOTT GIVES US ONE SOLUTION
An appreciation by Elizabeth Robson Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers and Reviews Editor, “The Barrister”
Legal services and what the client need from us are stalled at a crossroad so Elgar’s new title “The Law Firm of the Future” written by Jay Westcott is most welcome with its interesting observations. The most important statements are emboldened to place emphasis on the major key points of significance throughout the book.
Edward Elgar are to be congratulated for publishing legal management books at a time of such change within the profession. As lawyers, we probably all think we know which way to go but there is always that doubt about whether we have the future of our business activities properly mapped out, or not. And there are many high-quality books now in the legal market to help us, “The Law Firm of the Future” being one of the most important.
As the author says, “the market has become too sophisticated for undifferentiated large firms” so we get Westcott’s “building blocks” for adaptation. Do read the introductory chapter first where one finds the mission statement: “most firms would be well served to focus on their strengths which will be readily discerned by potential clients in the competitive and sophisticated market of today”.
“Moreover”, Westcott concludes, “by adopting some proven good practices as part of their overall strategy, they can counter some of the distinct problems that have come with unrestrained growth”.
The market for books on what the law firm of the future might look has expanded in recent years, mainly because of the options practitioners keep tripping over each time we attend a conference or read a legal magazine. Westcott gives us highly competent advice from his own crystal ball and it will be well-received in all quarters as we seek the new design of the successful practice. It helps!

FiNMAX Trading Accounts.
Even though the minimum investment required for a Platinum VIP account is high, the trading features can more than justify the initial investment barrier. The only concern is that traders may not feel comfortable depositing large amounts of money at FiNMAX without any proper regulatory protection. Regardless, the company has managed to steer clear of any large controversies, which does make it a bit more dependable than brokers that are located in tax havens.
FiNMAX Demo Trading Account.
FiNMAX offers a limited period demo that is valid only for a week, which is not a whole lot of time to learn the concept in detail. Although FiNMAX has limited its demo account to users, it is far better than avoiding a demo offering altogether. Seasoned traders can use the demo trading account to gauge the efficiency of the platform, while amateur traders can also use the demo period to familiarise themselves with the binary options market and put on a few trades to gain market exposure. Nevertheless, we would have appreciated if the company had provided a bit more time with its free demo account option.
FiNMAX clients can make use of the vast resources for trading, which includes advanced trading charts, personal account manager, and market analytics.
