Current Issues, Trends and Challenges Facing Today’s Law Firms …And How They’re Addressing Them!

The legal profession is in the midst of unprecedented change. Is your firm keeping pace? What are other firms doing? What should you, as a firm leader, be doing to learn from the experiences of others to lead your firm into the future?

Each year, The Managing Partner Forum conducts several surveys about issues important to law firms and their leadership. We recently surveyed 167 managing partners and law firm leaders about their leadership and governance models. At the MPF 2018 and 2019 Leadership Conferences, we deployed audience polling technology to capture data from 100 managing partners and firm leaders about what their firms are doing to invest in the future. In late 2017, we partnered with the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) to survey Chief Operating Officers and Executive Directors, in which 254 law firms participated.

In this timely, fast-paced session, John highlights the key findings of these and other recent surveys, providing his thoughts and insights along the way. The session will be highly interactive, involving the audience early and often, using audience polling technology, show of hands or encouraging questions throughout the session.
