Boardrooms & Roundtables:
Practice Group Professionals Roundtable
Our Practice Group Professionals Roundtable is designed to provide individuals who work closely with department heads, practice group leaders, and other law firm partners in practice management positions with a forum for energetic and strategic discussion. It is the only organization for the new and growing roles in practice management and business managers for law firm departments and practice groups. All discussions are confidential to the Roundtable members.
The goal of the Roundtable is to bring together individuals in similar roles to share ideas and experiences in their positions, participate in interactive presentations led by guest speakers, and discuss the “best practices” their firms are implementing. Topics addressed during our meetings have included:
- Project management & process improvement.
- Alternative fees.
- Creating and implementing effective business plans.
- Enhancing lateral hire recruitment and retention – from techniques in due diligence to assessment tools for hiring to the integration processes.
- How to measure practice management success (use metrics to benchmark performance in profitability, client satisfaction, market share, and more).
- The relationship between practice management and knowledge management and marketing.
- Techniques for improving client relationship management.
- The client’s perspective – the corporate law department’s view on using outside counsel.
- Understanding lawyer personality traits and their impact on practice group leadership.
- How to enhance your leadership effectiveness within your team of practice management professionals in your firm.
- Tools and templates used by firms for practice group management.
