What’s Slater & Gordon’s UK acquisition mean?

January 31st, 2012 |

On January 28th The Economist speculated it might happen Psst, wanna buy a law firm?. Then the tweeting started within minutes of the ASX announcement late in the afternoon on Monday 30 January. By early evening AEST the UK's Legal Week had the story: Courtesy of the UK's Legal Services Act, Slater & Gordon had made its first acquisition of a UK firm, personal injury specialists Russell Jones & Walker. My email inbox was running hot: What's this mean for other law firms in Australia and the UK? Read my views on some of the answers in The Australian later this week.
