  • Leading Tomorrow's Law Firm: Challenges and Opportunities in the New Legal Market

    Cost: $0.00 - $100.00

    Location: Terminal City Club

    Overview:

    Announcing the Annual Managing Partners’ event

    The rules of the legal marketplace are changing. Clients want their legal needs met faster and less expensively, and new providers are emerging to meet those demands. Older lawyers balk at succession plans, while younger lawyers walk away from the partnership track. There’s never been a more challenging time to be a law firm leader — nor has there ever been a time of such dynamic opportunities.

    Managing partners, practice group leaders, and law firm administrators who attend this session will gain insight into:

    • the most consequential trends and developments affecting the Canadian legal market,
    • key strategies and tactics for adapting their law firms to new competitive conditions,
    • how to help senior lawyers start transitioning their practices to younger colleagues,
    • how to reduce the risk of junior lawyers leaving the law firm after just a few years,
    • how to start streamlining law firm operations and improving legal business processes, and
    • how to begin the task or reorienting the law firm business model for a new generation.

    Guest Speaker : Jordan Furlong is a consultant, author, and legal market analyst who forecasts the impact of changing market conditions on lawyers and law firms. He has given dozens of presentations to audiences in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia over the past several years. Formerly an award-winning editor of three Canadian legal periodicals, Jordan is also a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management and co-directs the advisory board of Suffolk University Law School’s Institute on Legal Innovation and Technology.
