The theme of this conference is Reinvention.

Currently most law firms are discovering that although the economy is benign and the economic climate is broadly positive, they are struggling to improve productivity and profitability. 

The key challenge legal businesses face is how to reinvent themselves and what they can do in order to stay relevant and have a better and more profitable future. 

Our speakers want to help law firm leaders understand the challenges they face in trying to reinvent their businesses’ whilst giving some ideas about what they can do.


Topics & Speakers

We have created a broad range of topics addressing various issue law firms need to improve upon if they are to maximise revenues. Speaking on each topic is a relevant expert in their field, who fully understands the subject area and is keen to share their knowledge.
