Last year Lockton became a founding member of the Calico Legal Solutions Group. Calico is a unique collaboration of established and trusted suppliers to approximately 50% of the legal profession of England and Wales combined with clients ranging from sole practitioners through to Top 100 law firms.

Calico was set up in a bid to give law firms access to these suppliers, but most importantly to give a consistent flow of news, articles and white papers on a wide range of subjects access that apply to your practices.

Calico's aim is to focus on knowledgeable advice, practical guides and news with value and relevance to your firm. There are now over 100 articles in the Calico Library rich in content with no sales writing or adverts.
