The 2017 Law Firm Financial Performance Forum (10/25)

Profitability and practice management have never been more critical in the current landscape. As noted in the 2017 State of the Legal Market, legal market realities are such that law firms must redesign their approaches to client service, pricing, legal work processes, talent management and overall business structure to maintain any competitive advantage. Armed with exclusive industry analytics and a faculty of accomplished law firm executives, the 2017 Law Firm Financial Performance Forum will deliver invaluable, essential advice for immediate use.

The 16th Annual Law Firm COO & CFO Forum Welcome Dinner (10/25)

Continuing a new conference tradition, we are pleased to announce our Wednesday night Welcome Dinner at Little Park in the Smyth Hotel in New York’s stylish TriBeCa neighborhood. Celebrity chef Andrew Carmellini’s farm-to-table menu of “colorful,” “otherworldly” Mediterranean-inspired fare is a “classy” offering where New York’s “chic,” well-heeled cognoscenti partake in “beautifully conceived” cuisine and “inspired” cocktails. Seating is extremely limited.
