Avoiding juristic park: how to kick-start your law firm in the post Covid-19 world

supported by

Many law firms switched to ‘survival mode’ when governments started imposing lock-downs and many businesses had to close. Once the worst of the pandemic is behind us, the economy will have to re-start and will be on government life-support. Business will be extremely strapped for cash, which will in turn affect pricing of legal services. Beyond that, a shift of paradigm from global economy to the primacy of national/regional economies is in the air.

In this webinar, award winning strategy consultant Jaap Bosman and the moderators will look into the near future, discuss the upcoming legal needs of business clients and how lawyers can and must prepare to meet them today. Beyond that, we will discuss whether law firms of all sizes will be able to go back to ‘business as usual’ after an initial recovery phase, or whether the post Covid-19 crisis world will see profound and lasting changes in the work and internal structures of law firms.

The webinar will incorporate the results of a survey made with registered participants and other lawyers throughout the world.
