The economic downturn has been a difficult teacher, but from it, law firms and corporate legal departments have gleaned many valuable lessons that are now guiding their approaches to client service and practice management. The current business environment remains highly competitive, putting new pressure on managing partners and general counsel to improve the quality and delivery of legal services while instituting leaner, more efficient modes of operation. 
Our panelists will examine how law firms and legal departments are adapting and succeeding in a rapidly-changing landscape, including:
• What are the most important lessons learned from the downturn?
• What are law firms and corporate legal departments doing differently to succeed in today’s economy?
• Which of these new approaches are likely permanent?
• What skills are needed for tomorrow’s leaders?
• What are leaders in the legal profession doing to plan for future growth?
You won’t want to miss this informative and timely discussion, as our panelists share key learnings, best practices and predictions. Join attorney Charles A. Volkert III, executive director of Robert Half Legal, and guest speakers, Tim Collins, associate director of compliance at Hyundai Capital America, and David W. Simon, a partner with Foley & Lardner LLP, and the vice chair for strategic development of the firm’s litigation department, to learn more about important trends that are affecting the legal field.
