As law firms enter a new decade, with a recession continuing to create a challenging environment, it is increasingly recognised that just to “keep a lid on expenditure and weather the storm” cannot be a viable strategy for successful legal practice in the future. The overriding needs for forward planning and to adapt to change to meet the difficult challenges ahead become ever more necessary. Legal markets are likely to look very different when this recession is over.

Leaders of law firms need to be driving change now if their firms are to secure competitive advantage and sustained profitability. This masterclass is designed to guide delegates through the strategic planning and change processes needed if law firms are to successfully reposition themselves to take advantage of the opportunities in the legal markets of the future.

Topics to be considered in depth will include:

How to re-appraise your competitive positioning in the light of the urgent challenges now facing law firms
Turning your analysis into realistic strategic planning
Understanding the need to align performance with increasing demands by clients
Turning your strategic planning into successful implementation
Resourcing your plans – putting critical mass and merger in their place
With the aim of adding real value to those participating, prior to the masterclass delegates will be invited to raise with the facilitator particular issues they would like to see addressed during the course of the event.
