Law Firm Management Committee (Lead)

Description

Law firms are facing increasing and significant challenges, including intensified competition, digitalisation, globalisation and a segmentation of the market. How do you protect your partnership in this environment instead of becoming a corporate? What is ‘culture’ and how do you maintain it when growing? What is the best remuneration system in these challenging times, and how should you handle partner performance and in a way that enhances firm culture? There is, of course, not any ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution and we will discuss how law firm leaders can, and must, tackle these and many more questions in the very near term in order to ensure a bright future for their firms.
