In the 2017 UIA Congress, taking place in Toronto, Canada, the Management of Law Firms Commission will organize a challenging session on the subject “Law Firms Industry Sector Focus – the challenge for Traditional Sectors and the challenge of the Sectors of the Future”.

This half day session will have two panels where leading lawyers from different jurisdictions will share their views and experiences on what are the main challenges for clients’ traditional industry sectors anticipating what will be the industry sectors of the future that lawyers will have to assist and how this will increase the importance of industry-sector focus in law firms’ business models, strategy, fees, and recruitment. The session will also include a presentation and debate of a very interesting case study in the Energy Sector.

Technological development in most law firms is still at an early stage but the trend is changing. Many leading law firms are already implementing tools to change their traditional management methods and introducing recruiting models that allow them to deal with these new challenges. The Sectors of the Future will undoubtedly be integrating digitization and clients will increasingly demand efficiency and simplicity in the provision of legal services. Only legal firms and professionals capable of adapting fast to these demanding changes and responding to clients’ new expectations will survive and prosper.

The Management of Law Firms Commission invites all UIA members and law practitioners to join us in the discussion of this very relevant and interesting subject.
