Aligning Partnership Standards with a Changing Market

This program is available on demand.

In most law firms, partnership admission standards have not kept up with the changing legal market. New technology, new kinds of competitors, more pricing pressure and slumping demand have not only resulted in widespread overcapacity, but often have left firms with too many partners whose skill sets no longer match the firm's needs.

This 90-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Aligning Partnership Standards with a Changing Market, will discuss how law firms should begin to rethink the acquisition, composition, deployment, training and promotion of their number one asset — human capital — to align with changing goals and expectations. We will outline short-, medium- and long-term actions to position your partnership to remain relevant and competitive into the next decade and beyond.
