Business Leadership Summit and Awards launches

Sharp-eyed readers will almost certainly have spotted by now that there is something different about today’s issue of The Lawyer Management. In short, it’s no longer The Lawyer Management.

As we highlighted this week, the growing pace of operational developments in the legal market over the past few months have convinced us that the time is right to build on the success of The Lawyer Management since it launched two years ago.

The market’s more forward-thinking law firms, barristers chambers and alternative providers of legal services are increasingly generating innovative ways of matching their services to their clients demands. At the core of that service delivery and its implementation are the market’s business services leaders.

Our decision to rebrand, refresh and overhaul The Lawyer Management has been specifically designed to underline our focus on business services leadership. The Lawyer Business Leadership Summit and Awards, which will be held this September in association with Thomson Reuters, will do precisely that.

Notably the awards categories have been tailor made to reflect the seismic changes currently underway in the market. The formal launch of the awards categories, along with the criteria for each that our judging panel will be scrutinising over the summer, comes next week. But we rather thought you’d appreciate a sneak preview.

If you’re innovating, you should be entering.
