The Global Legal Post launches management course to help leaders reinvent their firms

Three-day programme to 'make sense of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead'

The Global Legal Post has teamed up with Lexington Consultants to launch an online management course to help law firm leaders and members of their teams thrive in 2021.

The three-day interactive online course – Preparing your law firm for success in the post-pandemic era – will be led by a team of former law firm leaders at elite firms and specialist consultants and has been tailored to cover the critical issues law firms face in the year ahead.

“We’ve designed this course for law firms trying to make sense of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in these uncertain times,” said Peter Cornell, chair of Lexington Consultants and former global managing partner, Clifford Chance. “It sets out to cover the full range of factors law firms must address to succeed covering strategy, finance, ownership, technology, people and, most importantly of all, changing client needs.”

The modules are divided into three broad themes: building your business, improving financial performance and delivering on your strategy. It will cover strategies for growth and to target profitable work, law firm ownership models and the latest thinking on how to measure and improve partnership performance. 

There will be a session on technology and innovation, including how to evaluate the myriad of products on the market and successfully integrate them, as well as a leadership workshop, to help participants understand how to lead and motivate teams working remotely.

The course has been designed with the needs of law firm leaders, other senior managers and lawyers preparing for leadership positions in mind.

Course leaders include:

  • Paul Browne, former Bain & Co consultant and director for group strategy, Barclays
  • Mari Cruz Taboada, associate professor, IE Business School, Madrid
  • Richard Macklin, former global vice chair, Dentons
  • Stephen Revell, former partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
  • Tony King, former director, Clifford Chance Academy

The course will run on the first three Fridays in March. For more details click here for further information and here to download the programme. Or email The Global Legal Post’s editor-in-chief, John Malpas, at johnmalpas@globallegalpost.com
