Law Firm Management Committee (Lead)


Our world continues to face unprecedented challenges, plunging from one crisis to the next. Tectonic shifts in geopolitics and all engulfing ripple effects of the pandemic have added to disruptions that all businesses, including law firms, have to address.

This session will look at the practical aspects of 'crisis management' within law firms, addressing risks that come with clients’ portfolios tied to particular regions, cyber security breaches, or partner team moves, and how a 'crisis' relating to any one of these might affect a law firm's reputation.

Could robust crisis management lead to opportunities through identifying, managing and mitigating strategic risks in order to make decisions that help law firms innovate, grow and succeed?
