Building business during a crisis

Virtual Event

5th OCTOBER 2021

The Law Firm Marketing Summit now enters its sixth year with an expanded international footprint thanks to its status as a virtual event.

Having successfully pivoted to holding an online conference last October, the forum returns on 5th October 2021 in the same format, but on an enhanced virtual platform, ready to unite like-minded colleagues from across the world to explore the biggest challenges facing law firms in an increasingly complex and competitive business environment.

The forum will bring together managing partners, senior business development and marketing professionals, general counsel and world-class advisers to debate how law firms can best position themselves to thrive in the post-pandemic era.

Its themes will be built around how Covid-19 has permanently changed the legal profession and the consequences of this for top business development and marketing professionals.

Our keynote sessions and top-level panels will analyse the latest data, examine thought provoking case studies and discuss their personal experiences, all in the aid of helping the delegation equip themselves for future success.

The over-riding theme will be one of opportunity: as business development and marketing become ever-more integral to the success of law firms, so does the potential for specialists in these fields to thrive.

Sessions will include:

Legal market trends
This session will draw on the latest research to explore the impact of Covid-19 on the legal profession. It is a given that the pandemic has accelerated trends that had already taken root in the legal market around digitalisation, but to what extent? And who the likely winners and losers.

Online marketing
Online marketing is nothing new but with the global pandemic forcing our hands, law firms have become more creative and innovative in their online strategies. In this interactive session, a case study looking at what a leading law firm has done in conjunction with a global technology supplier will give the chance to learn from real life implementation.

Business development
Managing partners and BD directors discuss practical strategies to dive your business forward. By looking at what has worked and what hasn’t over the last year, you can implement new and innovative business development strategies to help drive your business forward. How does technology help? How can BD affect change within law firms?

The clients speak
Back by popular demand, a panel of general counsel will discuss how and why their needs have changed during the pandemic. What marketing activities are getting their attention? What role is diversity playing in the new paradigm?
