Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Macquarie Business Banking’s National Segment Head for Legal, Matthew Bolle, to discuss the findings and key takeaways from the 2022 Business Barometer report, including the impacts of the pandemic upon law firms, the building of profits during that time, the scale­ to which firms invested in technology, how easy firms made it for clients to do business with them, and the extent to which customer experience was improved.  

Bolle also details how well law firms appear to be proactive about managing external events like a pandemic, the top challenges for legal businesses, considerations for workplace wellness, whether specialised boutique firms are diminishing, and ultimately how well placed the legal profession is for the post-pandemic market.
