Taking economic data from 1995 to date and using that to project the market conditions to 2020, you'll find here answers to questions such as the cost of market entry, the barriers to entry, what are the main challenges for the coming 5 years?. Is Unberisation in legal services or disruptive technology a major factor? If so, by whom? Where? When? What role will AI and court digitisation play? Is replatforming on the horizon again? How did the market react to previous business cycles and re-platforming challenges and when will it face these again? How have disparate teams like K2, Riverview, Axiom, Peppermint, Ravn or Slicedbread fared in terms of investment to make headway here? Just what is the cost of gaining critical mass here in cash and time? The market addresses the macro issues for law firm software developers compared to other development sectors in legal services, and it explores the benchmarks for employee cost ratios over the long term. It shows detailed benchmarks for each sector in terms of sales, growth rates, profitability, what good looks like and what great looks like. The sectors mapped in detail are The Big Law sector, the Mid-market, and the Small law firm software developers.

There are also 170+ consultancy businesses doing so now too. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, and this report highlights how this market now works, how it will perform to 2020, and more importantly what GCs expect from it irrespective of who is supplying it. For law firms - is version 1.0 of client marketing enough any more, or will version 5.0 deliver now? Having the best people may no longer be enough and the Who?s Who guides take you only so far. Segmenting clients by size and type is key, and this report shows the competitive dynamics involved at each level. What are the 20+ firms who just do employment law up to now? How successful are law firms at delivering HR consulting solutions too? Why are Irwin Mitchell and others tackling the regulatory consultancy market head on now? And how should it be done? From the core market economics to what GCs will and won?t outsource - and all points in between - the competitive axes in play are spelt out in detail. The 5 key issues (and the components of them) behind a commercial employment law service are examined in rigorous detail. This then informs assessing what to do next with the content marketing strategies, whether to bring an HR function in-house, what the critical mass is for a national team, the role of IT and many more questions are addressed.

Dismiss these challengers at your peril, they are already represented on some of the major blue chip legal panels and they want more. Every supplier is listed and click throughs from logos and innovative infographics enable GCs and purchasers of employment law services to assess each supplier directly. This major Report is comprehensive and full of surprises - the largest employment law specialist is no longer a law firm - 9 of the top 20 suppliers are consultancies, not law firm Big brands... Perhaps most important of all: it really is no longer an "Us v Them" choice in the mind of even professional buyers any more - GCs are as likely to buy from a consultancy as a law firm now. The costs of market entry also favour the innovators - be they solicitor led or not - with teams like 3HR, Capital People, HCR, Law at Work, Outset and rRadar showing how its done and done well. The market segment for teams doing employment law only is identified, quantified and key metrics established.
