A webinar presented by the IBA Law Firm Management Committee and the IBA North American Regional Forum (at 1100 - 1200 EST)

The North American legal industry is a dynamic marketplace where the hunt for talent is a top priority for every firm. That means that talent retention is, too. Whether it is filling the ranks of early-stage professionals, to plugging skills gaps, to entering new practice areas, to finding the star players who will take the firm to another level, the market is very competitive, and any firm on any day can be a hunter, or the home of the hunted. This webinar will address the following questions:

• how do we as businesses manage our firms and our talent so that we are as well-prepared as we can be when our talented colleagues are offered visions of potentially greener pastures?

• how do we as firm leaders create an internal culture and business model that fosters long-term loyalty?

• when lawyers jump ship, what are the most common non-monetary reasons they cite for leaving their current firm? and

• beyond the issue of money, what steps should you be taking today to poach-proof your firm?

We also look forward to hearing your questions during the Q&A session.
