Legal Sector Breakfast Briefing - Newcastle

Armstrong Watson and Yorkshire Bank would like to invite you to the next of our regular series of Breakfast Briefings for the Legal Services Market in Newcastle.

Developing Succession Planning Strategies - to be competitive

Succession planning involves safeguarding the future wellbeing of a professional firm, but too many firms put their heads in the sand and hope the problem will go away. Instead, as time passes planning for the future becomes even more urgent, with the risk of a firm becoming leaderless and losing its best talent and clients.

In this Breakfast Briefing Peter Scott will address some of these crucial issues which firms now need to face up to if they are to secure their futures, including:

  • successfully reconciling the different interests within a firm;
  • developing career paths for everyone in a firm;
  • how to deal with older partners;
  • succession issues for sole practitioners; and 
  • can acquisition/merger be a solution?       

Speaker Profiles

Peter Scott was for eight years until 2000 the Managing Partner of Eversheds London and European offices.  He acts as an advisor, trainer and coach to many law firms and other professional firms in the UK and abroad in relation to their financial, strategic, people, and risk/compliance management issues, with particular focus on helping clients to improve their competitiveness through effective performance management.  One of the roles he is most often asked to carry out for clients is to act as a 'discreet mentor' to managing partners and CEOs.

Peter is Editor of Practice Management Handbook (Law Society Publishing) now in its 2nd edition and a member of the Editorial board of Legal Compliance Bulletin published by the Law Society. He is a frequent speaker at conferences for lawyers and other professionals and his articles are published in a number of well known legal and other professional journals.  Alongside Armstrong Watson, Peter is co-author of the Law Society toolkit on financial stability.
