80% of law firms expect less work after Referral Fee Ban
According to a survey last week by the Association of Costs Lawyers – 80% of Personal Injury lawyers expect to get less work after next April 2013 as the implementation of LASPO (Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012) and the Referral Fee ban take effect.
Concerned Legal Firms
Solicitors are extremely worried and 84% expect a drop in profits and 90% expect increased competition to force down success fees once they are no longer recoverable. Added to that is the big shake up of legal services which has removed restrictions on where legal products may be sold- the so called ‘Tesco Law’ means that legal services can be offered alongside businesses such as supermarkets, banks, and High Street shops. The new set-up also means solicitors can seek external investment in new ways.
How to Develop New Markets
Solicitors’ firms therefore need to develop new markets, seek external investment and join up with other businesses to offer different products to consumers and provide opportunities for growth. Savvy law firms are already investing, marketing and using design & printed material to get their products and services in front of new markets and compete against their competitors!

In general people don’t like change!! We understand that change is an upheaval! Doing something differently is stressful and time consuming. But if businesses don’t adapt and change, they get stale and progress can be slowed if not coming to a complete stop!
Reviewing suppliers from time to time puts businesses in control. Here at Spot On we offer a simple challenge – Allow Spot On Design & Print, to quote Businesses for supplying 5-10 most ordered and used printed lines and we will save them money guaranteed! (subject to review of a recent copy invoice from existing suppliers).
Plus we will send them absolutely FREE OF CHARGE – A £50 REDEEMABLE VOUCHER to spend with us on any printed item of their choice for their 2nd order (subject to a minimum £100 spend).
Embrace change. We look forward to hearing from you.
