I am delighted to invite you to a vital webinar on law firm management that will provide you with crucial guidance for the present and immediate future of your law firm. Those firms that have leaders who are the quick to adjust are the most likely to flourish – and to enable your firm survive and succeed it is essential that you listen carefully to what clients actually want from you.

beyond_black_swan_invitation_5-page-001“Beyond Black Swan: Positioning the law firm for the “New Normal” – a dialogue with General Counsel” will feature unique insights from Rebecca Hong, Managing Counsel, Greater Asia for Intel Semiconductor, and Carina Wessels, Executive: Governance, Legal & Compliance at Alexander Forbes, who will share their candid thoughts on what law firm managers need to change in a lively and provocative dialogue with law firm veterans Paul Smith (ex-Global Chairman of Eversheds Sutherland and author) and Stephen Revell (Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Law Firm Management Committee, IBA-Officer). Adam Roney, ex-Head of Client Innovation at Eversheds, will field any technology questions.

“Law Firm leaders know that their clients are demanding Change.  But change what?  The legal industry urgently requires guidance from senior in-house counsel.” Paul Smith, ex-Global Chairman of Eversheds-Sutherland and co-author of “The Real Deal”.

In addition, the In-House Community will be presenting unique data on what specific services general counsel are looking to hire external firms to do NOW.  We will also provide candid views as to what law firms need to change from over 60 senior in-house counsel in the areas of: Effective Crisis Management; Fees & Billing; Focused, Succinct Advice; Efficiency & Technology; and Trust & Partnership.

I look forward very much to welcoming you to this important Webinar.
