    Please join us for our November 13th session where we will be joined by Dimitra Tsourpis and Roey Nevile of Aon Health Solutions, for a discussion: “Benefits Trends – one size doesn’t fit all. Key Considerations for the Legal Sector” Many legal firms are considering their strategies for benefits plan management in 2019 and beyond. Faced with competing for talent from industries outside of legal, the challenge of balancing member needs and wants with changing workplaces and escalating plan costs, legal employers should prepare for a number of issues in the near future.
