Deloitte going legal
12 March 2019
Deloitte’s legal arm is set to become a ‘big player’ in the UK’s £26bn legal market.
The new head, Michael Castle, said that the firm is ready to “transform the legal landscape”. No mean boast. Castle, who hails from Allan & Overy, explained that the legal profession is one of the last businesses to embrace wholesale digital transformation. He believes that combining law with the firm’s pre-eminence in consulting and technology will help the transformation.
Deloitte is however late to the game with EY, KPMG and KPMG already have UK legal businesses. The scale and financial clout of the Big 4 accountancy firms is undoubtedly seen as a threat by many of the current Magic Circle of firms.
