‘Strategic Leadership Forum 2010’

Examining Strategic Leadership to Improve Law Firm Performance

London, United Kingdom – 30th September 2010


‘In many activities, the leaders and the most accomplished are known as ‘Grand Masters’. As the world of legal services strives for competitive edge, maintained profitability and exemplary client service, the need for strategic leadership has never been greater. Client and regulatory demands, and the effects of competition and the economy, add to the leader’s challenges. Recruiting, retaining, motivating and managing the performance of highly talented people within structures where the long-established ‘rules of the game’ are being rewritten also test the leader’s skills and resolve.

The Grand Masters of Law is a one day strategic leadership event which seeks to explore the nature of leadership with contributions from leading figures within and beyond the legal world. This event will set out to discover what issues and skills the new ‘Grand Masters of Law’ will need to see them through and beyond the turbulent times ahead’.
