Established for 10 years, Professional Choice Consultancy (PCC) has significantly developed its services to the professional services market place.

Law firms and accountants now probably face the most intense period of enforced change in their history. The role and use of information technology is no longer a periodic consideration. The market is seeing an inevitable shift from bespoke to commoditised delivery of legal services which can be delivered by law firms or new entrants to the sector. Lawyers face considerable change and discomfort as they move through the evolutionary stages of client and market demanded change at the same time being challenged by competitors.
