MHA Legal Sector COVID-19 Survey Report

Towards the end of May 2020, whilst still in the midst of the COVID-19 lockdown period, MHA undertook a survey of the legal sector focusing on the impact of coronavirus, how this is affecting law firms and the influence on future plans.

Following the headline results we shared in June 2020, we have developed a short report which goes into more detail of the findings and further key statistics.

The report focuses on 7 key sections, including fee income, cash flow, business strategy and working practices going forward, and answers crucial questions such as:

  • How are law firms changing their current business strategy and what are they focusing on?
  • What have we learned from home working?
  • How will we change our working practices going forward?
  • What has been the impact on fee income and what should firms be thinking about now?

You can use this report to benchmark your practice against others nationally, as well as looking at the key next steps and action points that you should consider going forward.

If you would like any further information on any of the topics, please contact David Smith or Louise Mackie.
