Law school…law review…passing the Bar…landing a great associate position…Congratulations on making partner! A whole new series of demands, responsibilities, and benefits is now before you and you must master the skills needed to meet these new challenges head on to ensure success in your new role.

Your firm will call on you to be a manager, a leader, a business developer, and a mentor and teacher of associates. In addition, you must establish your niche and be able to market it internally, optimize collective firm resources, and juggle billable and non-billable obligations. You must develop your own book of business, deliver a client-centric approach to maximize business opportunities, and externally market your expertise to raise your value in the eyes of clients.

Moreover, you must achieve all this armed with the realization that you cannot represent everyone due to conflicts, and that perhaps the hardest challenge is to maintain a healthy balance between work and family life. Rest assured that you’re not alone in this. Others are on the same path as you. There’s one place you can meet and equip yourself with the tools for success.

American Conference Institute’s New Partner Forum will provide you with the strategies and solutions you need to achieve your critical objectives. ACI has gathered an outstanding faculty of leading law firm managing partners, chairpersons, CEOs and founders, executive and management committee members, office managing partners and partners-in charge, section and practice group heads, and CFOs and CMOs. They will provide you with first-hand, practical and comprehensive information on:
Meeting and exceeding your firm’s increased expectations on business generation
Resolving client unwillingness to pay rates
Building awareness, establishing your credibility, and setting yourself apart through external marketing
Communicating a coordinated firm approach to people and issues
Becoming a trusted advisor to your clients, rather than just a lawyer
You also can add value to your attendance by taking advantage of the Master Class on Effectively Presenting and Communicating Your Professional Expertise and Using Speaking Opportunities for Business Development. This session will cover proven techniques for improving presentation and communication skills and how to apply them in all types of interactions - with colleagues, clients, and in business development situations.

Take this opportunity to get the information you need from top law firm leaders as you network with colleagues. Delegates also will benefit from the extensive written materials prepared by the speakers especially for this conference.
