Lawyer Monthly - February 2022

Welcome to the February 2022 Edition of Lawyer Monthly! Our front cover feature for this month looks into the ongoing cryptocurrency market crash and one of its major underlying causes: a surge in national bans on crypto mining and trading across the globe. What countries have banned crypto, and what are the latest regulatory developments? Turn to page 12 for more information. This month’s edition also contains a plethora of articles of interest specifically for law firms. On page 50, James Gardner identifies three secrets that can give your firm an edge in the legal marketing space, and on page 62 we hear from Charlène Gisèle Bourliout on the measures firms can take to prevent burnout in their lawyers and help them to deliver sustainable excellence. Other insightful articles focus on the legal system itself, with Ruslan Ughrelidze examining the attractions of the UK courts post-Brexit (page 60) and a team from Pillsbury taking a deep dive into the merits and drawbacks of compulsory mediation (page 24). As ever, this issue also features a roundup of lawyer moves and evolving stories from across the sector. We hope you enjoy this edition!
