As a small law firm grows, skilled and effective leadership can be a decisive factor in its success.  What begins as a democracy of partners with ad hoc leadership must evolve into an organization with a formalized management structure and agreed-upon leadership roles. But too often law firm leaders are inventing their roles in real time without a template for success — and the learning curve is unforgiving.

This Altman Weil Webinar, Leading a Small Law Firm, will set forth best practices for effective leadership as law firms grow from 25 to 50 to 100 lawyers and beyond.  We will discuss how to define the leadership and management roles, invest your time most effectively, maintain a strategic focus, accomplish key goals, and build a leadership pipeline to sustain the firm going forward.

Topics include:

  • Combining leadership and law practice
  • Strategic focus vs. Problem solving
  • Tactics for leadership effectiveness
  • Developing management structures and a network of leaders
  • Identifying and grooming your successor/s
  • The role of non-lawyer administrators
  • Accountability: Building a firm-first culture 

Who should attend:

  • Managing Partners, Founding Partners and Firm Chairs
  • Executive and Management Committee members
  • Chief Administrators and Executive Directors
  • Practice group and Industry team leaders
  • Every partner with a stake in the firm's future
