After a decade-long expansion following the Great Recession, most experts agree that we should expect a cyclical downturn.  And although we cannot predict its date or degree, we know that those firms that have planned well and built flexibility and resilience into their strategic and operational models will fare better than those that have chosen to wait and see what happens.

This Altman Weil Webinar, Preparing for the Next Downturn, will set forth a framework of action for law firms that want to mitigate the effects of the next recession.  We will discuss how to plan for downside contingencies, identify your firm's pressure points, and make changes now that will improve your firm's ability to weather a future downturn.

Topics include:

  • Building contingencies into your strategic planning
  • Talking with clients about their recession scenarios
  • Anticipating moves from well-funded non-firm competitors
  • Balancing financial prudence against optimal profit
  • Assessing and diversifying practice, industry and expertise profiles
  • Improving workforce productivity and elasticity
  • Aligning compensation with sustainability goals 

Who should attend:

  • Managing Partners and Firm Chairs
  • Executive and Management Committee members
  • Chief Administrators and Executive Directors
  • Practice group and Industry team leaders
  • Every lawyer with a stake in the firm's future

James D. Cotterman, Principal, Altman Weil, Inc.
