Passing the Torch: Building Sustainable Firms with Age Inclusive Succession
Every law firm must carefully consider and plan for how the firm will continue to operate and effectively represent its clients in the face of expected and unexpected events, such as the retirement or sudden illness of its members and other emergencies. The keys to achieving sustainable firms are age inclusive succession planning, knowledge transfer and role shifts. Given the current demographics of attorneys, clients and the marketplace, there is no viable alternative but to plan for and embrace change. In this interactive presentation that includes break-out sessions for attendees, Phyllis Weiss Haserot, President of Practice Development Counsel, moderates a panel discussion of professionals who will address:
- How to identify and retain the firm's likely bridge-builders between generations.
- The need to open the tent to younger lawyer leaders-in-training.
- Work legacy protection and organizational culture.
