Global Independent Law Firms Forum 2020:

A Law Firm's Purpose In The Business And Legal World

Meet Senior Law Firm Leaders From Around The Globe

Our global community of legal professionals is what makes the Global Independent Law Firm Forum special and therefore, out of an abundance of caution for our attendees, speakers, sponsors and staff, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Global Independent Law Firms Forum due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The 2020 Global Independent Law Firms Forum now will be held in London in December 2020 at The May Fair Hotel.  We will be announcing exact dates soon.

ALM, publisher of The American Lawyer and Legal Week, is delighted to announce the Global Independent Law Firms Forum will return to London.

Now in its 14th year, this one-day conference has a long track record of bringing together the leaders of law firms from around the world to network and engage in topical discussions through open debate, panels, expert speakers and interactive seminars.

Relationships are key to the success of an independent firm in an increasingly competitive market. By establishing and enhancing referral networks, the forum provides the perfect occasion for you to meet managing and senior partners from leading independent law firms from more than 40 jurisdictions!

Over the course of the event, you will have the opportunity to discover crucial strategies to overcome the most pertinent challenges to face independent law firms in 2020. Explore the impact current political climates, the rise of big data, and the latest strategies for internal process optimisation will have on your firm’s purpose in 2020 and how you can best leverage these developments for enhanced client service delivery.
