It is not only an innovative firm which is ideally placed to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in the current legal market place, but it has also made a clear signal of intent in relation to the growth it wants to in achieve within its business legal services team at a time when other firms are retrenching. Although the economy remains challenging, I've seen a great deal of resilience within the engineering and construction industry over the last five years and people are now more keen than ever to get new projects off the ground. From what I can see, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future.
