Read a recap of our recent People in Practice conference from Jonathan Rayner in the Law Society Gazette.

The demons of anarchy, it seems, are marauding unchecked in the once orderly world of law. Partners hang on ‘by their fingernails’ to their offices and desks. Lawyers demand ever greater autonomy. Gurus, meanwhile, mutter darkly about ‘scrums’ and ‘matrix management’. And nobody – and ‘here’s a positive’, remarks a solicitor – mentions Brexit.

This is the Law Society Law Management Section’s People in Practice conference 2019. A succession of speakers and their audience discuss how to improve law firm productivity, reduce overheads, and attract and retain the best talent. The conference is chaired by City firm Goodman Derrick employment partner Alison Downie.
