In recent years, the legal profession has faced challenges to its organizational structure and delivery of client services. Working remotely and designing the office along with the resulting legal, recruitment and client relations issues are among the areas that have come under the microscope. Some firms made changes but many did not.
The pandemic caused by the emergence in early 2020 of the COVID-19 virus abruptly changed all this. The need for greater flexibility in all aspects of organizational structure became apparent overnight.
We’ve assembled a stellar group of individuals who had been exploring flexibility in organizational structure and operational efficiencies prior to the onset of the pandemic. The lessons and insights that they describe assume greater importance today than ever before. Join the discussion regarding how to reimagine the delivery of legal service through new organization and implementational designs. Our faculty will consist of the following entrepreneurs:
Joe A. Garza is a member of Grable Martin Fulton PLLC, a virtual law firm. Mr. Garza will deliver the keynote address describing his experience in that structure and the benefits it offers.
Norman Bobrow, President of Norman Bobrow & Co., Inc., represents commercial tenants in the leasing of real estate. Mr. Bobrow will explore the real-estate-related issues attendant to some of the emerging service structures.
Jonathan Friedman, Managing Director of Friedman Williams and Grant & Maxie, will discuss recruitment and retention of professionals in today’s environment and the human resources implications of the changing environment in that regard.
Elena Paraskevas-Thadani, an employment attorney and founder of EPT Legal, LLC, will describe legal issues attendant to the management of human resources in the context of emerging organizational trends.
Paul N. Mendelsohn, a CPA who draws upon his experience as CFO in Law Firms to offer Fractional CFO Services, will moderate the discussion.
