Leadership & Management in a Law Firm of the Future
Digital technologies are having a radical effect on the way legal services are delivered in the same way that they are changing the way we live our lives. How do leaders make the most of opportunities and mitigate risks in a digital era? PwC ‘s 2017 Legal Survey describes an imperative for change in the way law firms work, “fundamental action is needed to future-proof the shape and operation of the firm.” What does this look like in practice? No one has a blue-print, but we do know that businesses need to be well led and managed in order to create opportunities and be agile enough to capitalise on the possibilities. In a digital era, human skills will be at a premium.
