There are many sectors where small boutique businesses are disrupting the established large players and building strong positions capitalising on the differences they have and the advantages it gives them. The same opportunities exist for small law firms.
Smart young firms are applying pressure to established companies – often with tech – across industries such as finance and property. The fitness sector is no exception to disruptive forces, as we constantly find out in our annual Future 50 initiative. Barclays Business reported in January that the number of its customers operating a small health and fitness venture had surged by 37 per cent in just three years. And consumer spending is higher still, with 41 per cent growth between 2012 and 2015.
