Hear the Managing Partner’s perspective on the challenges law firms face in today’s competitive environment.   A panel comprised of Managing Partners representing regional, boutique, national and international firms will talk about a variety of current issues including law firm organization and resources, outsourcing options, alternative fee arrangement challenges, succession planning, marketing and business development issues, and social media and technology.  Such topics have a noticeable impact on the legal profession, particularly in two areas: increasing efficiency and in establishing a strong social media presence for the firm, its services and its lawyers. Learn key lessons from these law firm leaders, why change is hard for law firms, what to do about it, and why aligning objectives and goals with the management team is crucial to any law firm’s success in meeting these challenges. Learn how some law firms are working to capitalize on the skills and talents of their management teams to open doors to greater efficiencies and increased business development opportunities.
