Robert McKay Celebrates the Bread and Butterworths of Legal Publishing

Famed British legal publisher (and now imprint at Lexis) Butterworths celebrates 200 years in 2018.

Writes McKay: “Very much dependent in early days on the expansion of the British Empire and its legal system, Butterworths, no doubt replete with the English and Christian values of the day, followed it from the British Isles to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India employing a mix of structures, acquisitions and partnerships of various degrees of success and some failure.”
