Practice group leaders are under pressure
Today's practice group leaders are being asked to persuade their groups to operate as a business unit - develop a strategy, create an action plan for
achieving it, establish and monitor success metrics, operate in a coordinated fashion and become more efficient. But are these leaders receiving practical advice about how to achieve these goals?
A resource for pressured leaders
The free ABA Practice Smarter webinar series can help. The next 30-minute webinar is March 24. It will address practical tips for making a practice group more efficient, including checklists, managing e-mail and contacts, reinvigorating practice group intranet content and improving practice group meetings. Panelists will be David Sprentall - Partner at 400-lawyer Snell & Wilmer L.L.P. (Phoenix) and Chair of the Practice Management Group in the ABA Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Section - and Allison Shields - President, Legal Ease Consulting, Inc. (NY) and Co-Author, How to Do More in Less Time (American Bar Association 2015). I will moderate.
Future webinars in the series will address other concerns of practice group leaders, including how to decide where to start with efficiency improvements and how to get practicing lawyers actually to cooperate with change initiatives.
