Existential Threats to Law Firms

You missed the program but you can still order the CD!

What causes successful law firms to falter or fail?  When is a loss of key partners or a decline in revenue a temporary setback, and when is it a warning of worse to come?  Can the convergence of several otherwise manageable problems tip a firm into crisis?

This 75-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Existential Threats to Law Firms, identifies seven scenarios that can lead to potentially catastrophic partner defections and financial stress.  We will discuss the underlying drivers of each and provide practical solutions to manage through the risk and safeguard your firm’s future.

Topics include:

  • Unplanned leadership transitions
  • Fracturing partnership culture: Loyalty vs. agility
  • Compensation guarantees for lateral partners
  • Unfunded retirement obligations
  • Long-term debt: Borrowing against the future
  • Expiring lease obligations: A time of vulnerability
  • On the horizon: The endemic risk of overcapacity 

Who should attend:

  • Managing Partners and Firm Chairs
  • Executive and Management Committee members
  • Practice Group Leaders
  • Executive Directors and Chief Administrators
  • Every partner with a stake in the firm's future
