Building Long Term Sustainability into Short Term Decision-making

In the flurry of fast-paced critical decisions leaders are making today is a looming threat: the long-term impact of each of these decisions, in isolation and in combination. How can law firms ensure their day-to-day responses to a major global, yet temporary, crisis will not have a negative, permanent impact on their long-term viability? Just as many law firms faced consequences of rate discounts, staff layoffs and curtailed investments in the wake of the 2008/9 financial crisis, so too will law firms today grapple with the ramifications of the choices they’re making right now. Fortunately, the industry can learn from past mistakes. Law firms, with the right tools in place, can mitigate long-term damage. The key is in knowing what to look for now and how to factor ever-changing variables into the equation. Join us as we provide a framework for building long-term sustainability into short-term decision-making.

The Challenges and Opportunities of One-to-Many Legal Solutions by Professor William "Bill" Henderson

One-to-many legal solutions make it possible for lawyers and law firms to increase revenue and profit without selling additional units of time—in the words of legal futurist Richard Susskind, to “make money while you sleep.” On the one hand, the productization of legal expertise can be a highly effective way to increase marketshare and generate profit for operational and commoditized legal work that is otherwise subject to enormous rate pressure. Moreover, better to create these offerings ahead of one's competitors, as products are likely a gateway to additional services. On the other hand, one-to-many legal solutions require careful strategic planning combined with multidisciplinary teams who have the skills and resources to execute. Is your organization up for this challenge? In this talk, Professor Henderson delves into process of experimentation that is now taking hold among innovator and early adopter law firms and clients. In turn, he provides a candid review of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
