Will your next generation of partners be prepared for smooth transitions as client team, practice, and firm leaders as your senior partners plan their eventual exit?

Successful succession and transitioning planning is a two way street: 1) Senior partners and client relationship managers need to transition clients and responsibilities to selected next-generation partners; and 2) these heirs need to demonstrate the client relationship management, internal dynamics, and business development skills as well as keep growing substantive knowledge to be able to fill the well shined shoes of their seniors.

This webcast provides critical information for both current and upcoming firm leaders faced with the dilemmas of transitioning senior lawyers while resolving multi-generational issues relating to practice and client management and retention.

Here’s what participants will take away from this webcast:

• An understanding of why smooth transitioning is even more important in a down economy
• Components of an effective transitioning process that benefits clients and firms
• How to prepare the next generation for smooth, confident transitions
• What’s in it for the senior partners?
• An understanding of the business case for firm sponsored transition planning – Why you need a formal process
• Best practices for successful transitioning for firms and individuals
