OPENING REMARKS FROM THE CHAIR

Eric Chin | Consultant | STRATEGY CONSULTANT  

SESSION 1: WHAT REALLY IS YOUR COMPETITION AND HOW DO YOU MEET THE CHALLENGE?

As a small or boutique rm, who or what are your real competitors—the big law rms? the Big 4? AI? New Law? All the above? Or possibly none of the above!

I’m a behavioural scientist and a consultant who helps law rms, large and small, meet the strategic challenges that they face. Looking at the situation through the eyes of a scientist and a strategist I believe that the answer is to be found in a fundamental re-examination of what the business of law is all about. Once you decide what business you’re really in, you can look around with a new eye at your real competitors.


Dr Bob Murray | Principal | FORTINBERRY MURRAY

SESSION 2:  TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION

SESSION 3: AFTER ACTION REVIEWS – GENERATING MATTER-BASED INSIGHTS THAT SUPPORT EFFICIENCY, COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION

After Action Reviews (AARs) are structured debriefs where project team members discuss what worked, what didn’t work and what should be done differently next time. Pioneered by the US military, and now used by many corporations and NGOs, the application of AARs in law firms remains limited, with just 15% of firms undertak- ing regular AARs. This session examines the characteristics of an effective AAR and how to build a culture that can realise the benefits of this valuable performance and learning tool

Ray D’Cruz | CEO | PERFORMANCE LEADER

SESSION 4: EXPLORING OPTIONS IN TECHNOLOGY: LEGAL PLATFORMS: MAN- AGING STAFF OPTIONS: BUSINESS MANAGEMENT & SUCCESSION

“Not my Journey but Yours”

The story of a Legal Practice is one shared by many. This is an opportunity to share the best options with each other in the story of many. The paper will cover the above topics as experienced from the coalface.
Barbara Campbell | Managing Partner | CAMPBELL & CO LAWYERS

SESSION 5:  UNRAVELLING THE BLOCKCHAIN 

Blockchain is being touted as the next big thing and looked to as a solution for everything from ride sharing to the providence of mangos. But what is it? This session will unpack the technology and look beyond the hype as well as exploring how it will affect the legal industry in the years to come.

SESSION 6: CLIENTS: KEEPING UP WITH THE ‘NEW’ DIGITAL SAVVY CLIENT
Today’s clients are savvier than ever, and technology is developing at a rapid pace.  In an industry that’s historically lagged behind in the digital era, how can lawyers keep up with tech-savvy clients and set themselves apart from more traditional law firms?
Marianne will provide a snapshot of the ‘new’ digitally savvy client, and explore the technological tools and platforms available to lawyers to stand out from the crowd.
