In March 2009, the LEX programme received praise for delivering realistic and sage advice during a period when times were tough in the legal sector. The LEX 2009 speakers adapted their talks to give honest accounts of what it was like to manage a law firm through an economic downturn and delegates benefited from the opportunity to come together, as a profession, to share their troubles.
Now things look much more positive, and the signs of economic recovery are showing through. And, just as we were there to help guide you through the bleak times, LEX 2010 plans to be there to provide you with all the advice you need to steer your firm out of the recession; take advantage of the latest technological developments and look ahead to the opportunities created by the changes in the legal services market and profession.
For 2010, the LEX programme has been completely refreshed to support law firm leaders standing on the brink of economic and structural change. LEX 2010 includes:
• A keynote address by Alan Hodgart on the future of legal services provision
• A keynote address by Charles Christian, on the future of law firm technology
• Two specialist tracks, one on law firm management, one on technology implementation
• The Chief Executive of QualitySolicitors.com speaking on the importance of brand during an era of legal services liberalisation
• A panel of General Counsel explaining what they expect from their law firms post-recession
• A panel of Chief Executives discussing the impact of the recession on the sector and viable recession-exit strategies
• Law firm practitioners Janet Day, Keith Wood and Charlie Keeling return as speakers to the event by popular demand, to impart their wisdom twelve months’ on from the economic mire
• Case-studies in advanced technological solutions examine the benefits of desktop virtualisation, cloud computing, mobile technology and unified communications
• An exploration of social networking as a medium for law firm business development
• HR, Finance and Risk Management topics positioned to help you stay in control as the sector exits the recession
• 15 law firm IT Directors represented on the speaker panel
• 29 speakers and panellists all representing firms at the forefront of change in the legal sector
Managing Partner magazine's annual LEX event is designed exclusively for senior managers within law firms who are actively engaged in developing performance-improvement projects for their firm. Typically, these projects focus on generating cost and process efficiencies in law firms, in the seven years LEX has been running, we have been able to help delegates achieve excellence across a broad spectrum of projects ranging from business development to risk management.

The rationale for LEX 2010 remains simple, by providing senior managers - Managing Partners, Senior Partners, Chief Executives, Chief Operating Officers, Finance Directors, IT Directors, Risk Directors and HR Directors amongst others - with peer-generated advice and guidance in an environment in which all participants share similar management roles and responsibilities, we help our delegates accelerate the delivery of their projects and considerably improve the chances of success.

Many people anticipate that, once the economic upturn hits with full force, law firms will be clamouring to implement the advanced technology projects that they had to put on hold during the downturn. This event provides law firm directors and solution providers alike with the perfect opportunity to come together to meet and talk through project requirements. This will equip LEX 2010 law firm delegates with the means to get ahead of the competition by implementing advanced technological solutions quickly, before everyone else does.

'Achieve two months work in two days'
Furthermore, LEX 2010 will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the solutions and services that are available to help them deliver operational efficiencies - in the most productive way. We have found that introducing our project leaders to selected suppliers for brief consultations has enabled them to shortlist potential partners quickly and effectively and, as one previous delegate put it, 'achieve two months' work in two days'.

If you are driving a key operational project within your law firm and think you would benefit from hearing how your peers have approached similar challenges as well as from meeting with potential new partners, then apply for a place at LEX 2010 now.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this annual invitation-only senior level networking event for law firm leaders and directors.
