Legal Sector Breakfast Briefing - Dumfries

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;
