The Welsh government has commissioned a review of the legal services market in Wales to identify opportunities for increased investment and employment in the sector. It will be carried out by former Eversheds’ partner, Kevin Doolan. The Welsh government stated that the sector is going through “significant changes” but has identified it as a “priority economic sector with high growth potential”. The review follows the visit from the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, last year, who spoke of the role justice plays in the economic prosperity of Wales, its people and its governance.
