The pace of change in the legal market is unprecedented amid recent economic developments and the pandemic affecting business everywhere. Over the last year, firms have focused on how to remain a profitable business while grappling with the increased competition from ALSPs and the big 4.  The pressure is now on to continue Business as usual, while contending with current unprecedented developments across the world and keeping apace in a volatile environment.

The 2020 Business Leadership Summit was designed to debate and provide solutions for firms practically addressing these challenges, taking a closer look at defining and understanding their purpose to prosper in the new decade.

Attracting over 150 senior executives from law firm leadership teams including Managing Partners and C-Suite, the Summit offers a selection of 30+ sessions ranging from quick-fire TED-style talks, roundtables, panel discussions and interviews. Attendees have the opportunity to tailor their individual schedule of conference sessions to meet their own requirements.



The Lawyer’s Business Leadership Summit brings together Managing Partners, C-Level executives and senior leadership teams representing international and independent firms from across the UK and Europe, as well as NewLaw and ABS players to discuss business strategies and running a successful firm in today’s competitive environment.

The Summit attracts key decision makers within law firm leadership teams, who are responsible for driving their firm’s strategy whilst offering a mixture of thought leadership, challenging debates, practical advice and valuable case studies from some of the industry’s most distinguished experts.


Join our informative discussions on issues such as what do you stand for as an organisation looking through the lens of profitability v purpose and whether well-being is achievable in the overtime model where employees are constantly accessible via tech; what do the clients have to say about this?


Spend a day learning why being a purpose led firm matters now more than ever, discussing all things strategy, innovation and data for a prosperous future.


The roundtables are a great opportunity to network and share ideas with like-minded industry peers in a less formal environment led by industry experts. Take advantage of 2 of the 7 roundtable options to hone your learnings in these pertinent areas.


Make the most of the networking functions the event has to offer by building new contacts or reconnecting with existing ones. Take advantage of the time provided by exchanging thoughts and impressions on the event’s discussions and finding out what your peers think of these issues.
