The CommBank Legal Market Pulse combines in-depth quantitative data with commentary from CommBank’s Professional Services specialists, designed to give you insights behind the numbers.

The report is an exclusive, wide-ranging analysis of the Australian legal sector. The report is based on a quantitative survey of CEOs, Managing Partners and other senior leaders, drawn from a cross section of the top 50 law firms around Australia.

In this edition of the CommBank Legal Market Pulse we focus on three questions of interest to legal practitioners today: the rise of outsourcing, the increasing need for investment in efficiency, and the challenges of price negotiation in an intensively competitive market.
