Winston Churchill once said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. However, unless you are running Zoom, or one of the few other businesses to have benefited from the pandemic, you may have a hard time thinking of this crisis as “good.” But perhaps we could. After all, most law firms are notoriously resistant to change. Yet the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace of transformation – some of it for the better – in ways few may have initially imagined. Moreover, as the global health and science community continues to push for a universal vaccine, business leaders, regardless of institutional size or locale, are actively strategizing how to avoid rolling back many of these developments when a new normal arrives.

This webinar offers guidance from our latest research into how partners and staff want things to be different going forward. What do law firm professionals truly value in the new working climate? Honed through the lens of talent and technology, our panel will deploy innovative best practice models to explore how firms and individual practice areas can prepare themselves for the months ahead. Participants will discover how to harness changes surrounding people and process to create a positive and enduring impact on both client experience and firmwide financial performance.
