The legal profession globally is in flux and constantly searching for innovative ways to deal with the challenges that it faces. These challenges include an uncertain economy, changing global world order, disruption in business and commerce, the rise of technology, increasing competition and the resulting pressure to keep cost down.
How do we turn these challenges into remarkable opportunities for growth and development? Embracing change and disruption, adopting innovation and harnessing technology are crucial for law firms and lawyers to stay ahead of the curve and continue to serve clients in an effective and efficient manner.
In a mature market where technical excellence is a given and expected, relationship building and impeccable service delivery are key distinguishing factors to clients who have access to many great lawyers, but few really trusted advisors. More pertinent to younger lawyers, who are finding their feet in the profession, are sector specialization and regionalization. This will allow them to build deep industry knowledge and jurisdictional expertise.
Please join us for a lunch time session on 01 June where the speaker Shobna Chandran (with more than 10 years of experience in both local and international firms), who is a Partner in the arbitration & disputes practice at Dentons Rodyk will share her thoughts on the challenges facing law firms, suggested solutions on an organizational level and how individual lawyers can take steps towards building a robust, resilient and fulfilling career in the global economy.
