Why did you become a director of Lawlink?
Anderson Lloyd has had a long association with Lawlink and I’ve been involved in various Lawlink initiatives over the years. Having seen first hand the benefits of Lawlink, I thought I could add value to the organisation going forward, by helping it remain fit for purpose as the practice of law changes.
What value does Lawlink add to its member firms, staff within those firms and clients of those firms?
The real value to member firms, and staff within them, is the collaboration and collegiality. Ideas, expertise and experience are all shared and it’s fantastic as a lawyer to be able to tap into wider expertise. The precedents database, joint purchasing and member benefits all deliver value.
The benefits of Lawlink membership for clients of our firms include being confident that their lawyers have access to a broader range of expertise from around the country, and that they are at the forefront of the latest legal developments and professional development.
Where do you see the future of Lawlink?
Lawlink will continue to play to its strengths, fostering collegiality and collaboration amongst member firms. It also has a role to play in helping firms deal with the changing landscape, from technological developments and compliance through to insurance requirements.
