Share, Compare, and Learn: Owner/Attorney Panel
“How do I hire the right people?” “How do I make the LWP system work for me?” “How did you bounce back from the pandemic?” These are just a few examples of the types of questions you can ask fellow owner/attorneys during this free-wheeling Panel. Limiting attendance to owner/attorneys allows you to broach topics and ask questions that you might not feel comfortable discussing with your entire team in the room.

Share, Compare, and Learn: Team Member Panel
“What is the best way to hold my boss accountable?” “What can I do to help the firm operate more efficiently?” “How do I handle ‘difficult’ clients?” You can ask questions like these, and share whatever else is on your mind, during this Team Member Panel. Since attendance is limited to your peers—teams from around the country—you can talk freely about issues you might not want to raise with your firm’s owner in the room.
