August 2018 Market Horizon Scanning Report

Welcome to the August 2018 edition of the Riverview Law Market Scanning Report.

As part of our market and horizon scanning activities we have always collected and circulated internally relevant legal market articles, commentaries, reports and blogs. When we shared this data with a GC he asked why we didn’t routinely share this with him because he’d find it invaluable. It was a good question!

So, we now publish this report which, as you’ll see below, contains links to what we think are the most interesting and relevant legal market commentaries of July 2018 and previous months.

Best wishes,

Welcome to the July 2015 edition of the Riverview Law Market Scanning Report.

So, we now publish this report which, as you’ll see below, contains links to what we think are the most interesting and relevant legal market commentaries of June 2015 and previous months.

January 2014 Market Horizon Scanning Report

Welcome to the January 2014 edition of the Riverview Law Market Scanning Report.

As part of our market and horizon scanning activities we have always collected and circulated internally relevant legal market articles, commentaries, reports and blogs. When we shared this data with a GC he asked why we didn’t routinely share this with him because he’d find it invaluable. It was a good question!

So, we now publish this report which, as you’ll see below, contains links to what we think are the most interesting and relevant legal market commentaries of the last month – December 2013.
