REBROADCAST: This 2016 webinar is back by popular demand!


One of the consequences of the changing legal market is overcapacity: too many lawyers and not enough work.  Law firms – faced with essentially flat or declining demand, commoditization of some practices, new competitive challenges and the encroachment of technology alternatives – are grappling with the financial drag of some lawyers who just aren’t busy enough.

This 75-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Too Many Lawyers - Not Enough Work, puts the problem in context, provides a framework of key metrics, discusses effective and ineffective short-term responses and lays out a road map your firm can follow to develop a new and more agile model of people, practices and technology.

Topics include:

  • Scope and magnitude of lawyer overcapacity
  • Market pressure: Competition; Commoditization; Technology
  • How much is overcapacity costing your law firm?
  • Impact on clients, rainmakers and aspiring partners
  • Why growth is probably not the solution
  • The effectiveness of compensation adjustments
  • Getting and using objective data on work volume
  • Short-term workforce rebalancing
  • Long-term investments in a more adaptive law firm

Who should attend:

  • Managing Partners and Firm Chairs
  • Executive and Management Committee members
  • Practice Group Leaders
  • Executive Directors and Chief Administrators
  • Every partner with a stake in the firm's future 

Program presenter:

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