This is a premier event for law firm COOs & CFOs, focusing on the strategic investments necessary to meet client demands and maintain competitiveness and profitability in the continually changing legal market.
In recent years, many law firms have seen their profitability numbers remain constant or even increase during periods of declining market demand due to rigid expense management. Those days are gone, and in a world of flat demand, firms need to be looking at new ways to maintain profitability by leveraging resources in more effective and efficient ways and managing the risks associated with these changes.
Topics include State of the Legal Market: Where We Are and Where We Are Headed; Strategic Risks: How Firms Go off the Rails; Macroeconomic Risks: Why All Firms Should Care about the Euro and Other Global Financial Crises; Finding New Strategies: Improving Legal Work Processes and Leveraging Human Capital.
