Panel Discussion ­– the Directories

Directory submissions continue to be a significant drain on the dwindling resources law firm marketing departments typically have. This session will discuss practical solutions you can implement in your firm to help streamline the process internally.  We’ll offer real life examples of how to get the best input from your lawyers, how to save time and effort and how to get the best results.

Moderator, David Adams, Managing Editor, Top Ranked

Daniel Kidd, Director, Kidd Aiken 



Panel Discussion – the Client’s View

This panel will explore the Ignite themes from the perspective of GCs. How are they helping to create a sense of purpose within their businesses? How does this impact their relationships with outside counsel? How are they using technology and data to further their goals? How are they engaging with their advisers to promote wellbeing in the workplace?

Moderator, John Malpas, Editor, Global Legal Post
