Rethinking the Business of Law with Manchester Law Society
In news / By Charlotte Tobulevicius / 14 January 2020
This event is intended to offer a more insightful, deep dive into the rethinking of some of the core features of legal business. It will address the application of customer experience techniques to winning work, new agile and mobile lawyer working models and the transition of legal document production to a digital process.
What’s on at the Event?
In addition to excellent networking opportunities, there are a number of keynote speakers at the event who will cover several topics, ranging from embracing the future with leading technologies to rethinking the client experience and risk management.
Nasstar’s CEO, Nigel Redwood, will be joining a panel of legal experts in the 4pm session - Rethinking the lawyer ‘workplace’: Anytime, anyplace, anywhere - where he will discuss the importance of firms keeping up with the evolving workforce through flexible working and technology.
Other experts on the panel include Daryl Cooke from Gunnercooke, Ann Harrison from Stephensons and Ste Pritchard from Matrix 247.
Flexible Working & Technology
With flexible working on the horizon for much of the UK workforce, it’s clear that law firms need to get on board to stand out from their competitors and embrace a modern workplace.
In the legal industry, remote working has to be secure and lawyers need to be confident that their devices are secured to the highest levels for use in both the office and at home. At Nasstar, we work with law firms to implement the technology, systems and processes to offer more flexible working solutions to staff, without compromising on the performance of systems or security of data.
Flexible working now also plays an important role in attracting and retaining a diverse workforce, especially when it comes to women in law. A recent survey cited that 45% of women working in law believe that prioritising work-life balance would jeopardise their success in a firm, while 16% thought that showing commitment to a family would negatively affect their career progression. So, is enough being done?
