Risk Update

Law Firm Risk Webinar Panel — “Inside the Minds of Clients & Firm Management” (Conflicts Complexities, Staffing, Communication & More)

I was pleased to be asked by my friends at Wilson Allen to moderate an upcoming risk webinar.

  • Discussion is focused on a great theme: “Evolving Law Firm Risk: Inside the Minds of Clients & Firm Management.”
  • There’s a great panel on deck, featuring two consultants who have been around the risk block more than once, and the Assistant General Counsel, Global Head of Legal Ethics & Professional Responsibility at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (Michael Misiewicz, who previously worked in-firm as a conflicts lawyer with WilmerHale, and prior to that Hogan Lovells)
  • And I expect moderation will be satisfactory

As with these sorts of things the panel prep sessions are typically worth broadcasting in and of themselves. And this group’s experience was no exception. We’ve developed an agenda designed to address some expected and some fresh topics for the law firm risk audience:

  • Exploring the Mindset of the “Risk Reviewers” (External Clients & Firm Laywers)
  • How firm management and client leaders consider the policies, practices, and priorities of law firms
  • Considering Conflicts Complexities (Ethical conflicts, Business conflicts, Positional, and “fuzzy scenarios”)
  • Evolving Staffing Models (Why and How Centralization Matters)
  • Making the Case for Investment and Change (And Communicate Effectively with Firm Management)

The floor will also be open for attendee Q&A, commentary and discussion. So don’t be shy…
