Best practice management in law firms today
Globalisation and the economic shift to Asia has resulted in significant new opportunities for law firms operating in this region. At the same time, partners in these law firms are facing increased challenges including cost pressures, growing competition and talent retention issues. In this changing legal landscape, law firm partners must complement their technical legal expertise with business acumen and a clear strategy to manage these challenges and seize emerging growth opportunities.
The SAL-INSEAD Legal Leadership Programme is a three-day intensive management programme specifically designed and contextualised to address the needs of law firm partners, general counsel and legal service officers. Participants from the private sector should currently have P&L remit in their roles or will soon be assuming P&L responsibilities in their organisations.
This unique programme applies business school methodologies to address business challenges faced by legal professionals including strategic planning, improving organisational alignment, managing growth and change, and motivating people and teams.
