The first quarter of 2020 rapidly shifted from what seemed to be a promising start to the year to unprecedented territory for law firms. Using proprietary data, this webinar will provide the first in-depth look available anywhere to explore exactly how law firms fared economically during the first quarter. We will examine the early impact of social distancing and shelter-at-home orders on law firm demand, rates, productivity, and other key metrics at the close of the quarter. We will also look at newly compiled research straight from law firm clients about how their needs and the expectations they have for their outside counsel are changing as the crisis evolves–and what firms are already doing to differentiate themselves in this new market reality.
A panel of industry experts will discuss some of the strategies firms have employed, how successful those strategies have been, and other steps law firms might consider taking as our current situation continues to evolve. Leave this session with a better understanding of the true economic picture facing law firms today and some ideas about how to best position for what comes next.
