Jan Dernestam Dimitry Afanasiev
This session seeks to get to the bottom of how law firms can collaborate from within in order to better service their clients. Once this is achieved, how can independent law firms work with one another (particularly those in a different jurisdiction) to achieve true cost savings, efficiencies and quality for their clients?  
  • How do you create a collaborative culture?
  • Consideration of cultural differences between firms and the impact this can have on collaboration 
  • What is the impact of increasing use of technology in relation to collaboration and how will this develop in the future? 
  • Project management: a vital tool for efficiency and collaboration- how to raise your game?
