Yesterday a swathe of the great and the good of the UK legal market in the form of the judging panel for this year’s The Lawyer Management awards – along with yours truly – jammed themselves into a corner office at The Lawyer Towers to thrash out the shortlist.
Thanks very much to all concerned, it was a great day with some stimulating debate about pretty much every operational issue facing law firms under the sun. What’s more, I believe it’s resulted in a cracking shortlist, but you’re going to have to wait until 14 July for it to be unveiled.
The awards themselves are on 22 October. On the same day The Lawyer Management conference will explore in minute detail several of the themes relating to the disaggregation of legal services that were raised in The Lawyer Management Guide to Delivering Legal Services Differently, which was published this week.
