In March, the UK inflation rate dropped to 0% and economic trends showed that growth in consumer demand has increased, but as always the long-term effects can go one of two ways. Overall, it has been stated that the UK economy is still set for continued growth in 2015, but may be at a slightly slower pace. With such a variety of economic and political factors continuing to influence the economy, it can be difficult to predict what the long term future holds. So, how will this affect your legal team and how might you manage the affects in your business when it comes to making commercial decisions within a timely fashion? Well, innovation and can flexibility certainly help, it’s a question of maintaining the balance between innovation and risk.
2015 is said to be the year that the desire to take new risks is being supported by positive growth within the UK and I for one believe that agility within any business department will be crucial and is certainly something to keep an eye on.
