2015 could be a challenging time for UK legal businesses. The IMF has revised the Eurozone growth forecast from 1.2% growth to minus 2%. The slump in growth with supply of services outstripping demand and greater competition from accountants, alternative business structures (ABS) and online services, may mean that UK law businesses are looking at mergers to spread costs and de-risk and hopefully increase turnover. It is predicted that 2015 could be the year of UK law firms consolidating. Fortune favours the Brave and Failure favours the half hearted.
