Training for Law Firms, Lawyers 

& Counsel (F2F or Online)

Today’s lawyers are required to be professional by their regulator both in their chosen disciplines and in a range of people and commercial skills that they may not have foreseen as students or trainees.

 

Partners and senior associates are expected to fulfil leadership, project management and business development roles that require skills and mindsets different from, and complementary to, their technical abilities. Their firm’s ability to differentiate increasingly depends on such abilities and firms which invest in them can gain significant competitive advantage over those who do not. 

 

Beyond a superficial appeal, traditional business schools can struggle to engage students meaningfully and to generate practical learning. Training companies impart one-size-fits-all tools and tips that lack substance and relevance. One-off experiential learnings create short-term openings that may not translate into new habits. Coaching, even when effective, may be used only for remedial purposes. And experienced or retired lawyers, who may command initial respect may "lecture" their juniors and focus on the details of “how they did it” rather than distilling and bringing alive the underlying principles that remain useful, relevant and valid.

 

This is not our way.

Since 1997, we have built a unique track record of helping lawyers develop non- technical skills throughout their careers, working internationally with full service global practices as well as with medium- sized and small firms.

Our projects are custom designed and may take the form of branded initiatives or of in-house curricula. Within the custom design, our work is further tailored to each part of the organisation, to each group and to each individual.

We also help Human Resources and Learning and Development managers to address challenges such as influencing the Partnership towards new ideas and designing development curricula.

Projects include creating strategy and generating alignment across departments and regions, developing the partnership culture to fulfil strategy, raising confidence, morale, performance, motivation and retention, improving internal collaboration and cohesion and generating higher client and partner satisfaction.
