For many years the Management Group has provided a space for those with responsibilities managing their law firm to share ideas and best practice.
As we re-launch as the Leadership Group, we are delighted to present a lively and thoughtprovoking recorded lecture from Professor Julian Birkinshaw, followed by an online discussion among participants. Whether you are a managing partner, senior partner, a newly appointed partner, or an aspiring leader in your firm, this is a great way to absorb insights from other sectors, share your experiences and learn from each other.

• How to avoid getting stuck in outdated practices that frustrate clients and alienate employees
