Welcome to Issue 5 of On Balance, the commercial magazine from Weightmans that examines the issues affecting our clients.

 

With the economy reporting the strongest period of growth in Quarter 4 of 2013, many businesses are continuing to focus on driving value and return on investment through innovation and diversification. This issue is packed with stories about how our clients are looking for creative ways to grow and are increasingly looking for high quality, commercially driven services which offer a range of solutions from strategic HR initiatives, finding partners for corporate funding, down to day to day business management. More and more of our clients are wanting the corporate memory and knowledge of their business that comes from relationships with a single legal provider. This enables a cohesive team-based approach to problem solving and businesses are reaping the rewards.

 

As part of our own strategy for long term growth, Weightmans has made the decision to implement innovative technology platforms 3E® and MatterSphere®. Working with Thomson Reuters Elite (TRE), a leading global provider of enterprise business management solutions, we will use the platform to consolidate matter, document, practice and financial management functions. In today's fast moving legal sector, being alive to the challenges facing all law firms is business critical.

 

As we continue to expand, we need to implement an infrastructure that supports our advanced processes and initiatives to improve the way we deliver services to our clients. Technology is at the core of our business and we're constantly working to develop new ways of enhancing our clients' experience; our efforts to work smarter have a positive and direct effect on them.

 

I do hope that 2014 is economically vibrant for you and as ever, if you have any feedback on the magazine, or if you'd like to feature, please do let me know.
