Demand for legal services to surge after pandemic
he end of the coronavirus pandemic will be followed by a “massive increase” in demand for legal services, the president of the Law Society has predicted.
But Simon Davis warned that the legal system could not handle the amount of problems that have built up during lockdown. “Will it cope? I don’t think it will.”
Speaking at an online session of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Legal and Constitutional Affairs, hosted by co-chair Lord Hunt, Mr Davis said a lot of people with legal problems were “very nervous” about taking action.
