JUNE 2017

 

GO, GO, GO to MONTREUX, MONTREUX, MONTREUX!!!  At the FDCC Annual Meeting in Montreux, LPM Vice Chairs Mike Shahloub and John Quinn along with Sheryl Willert will be presenting In Advance of the Crisis: An Ounce of Prevention and Preparation.  Given the terrorist and internet hacking events in the last 30 days alone, that LPM is presenting a program designed to assist us all in designing a plan of action, including systems and procedures, to implement when (not if!) a crisis occurs could not be more opportune!  Expect this one to be standing-room only, because all of us, not just some, can bring back takeaways from what will be such a relevant presentation, Federation-wide.

If you have not yet made plans to be in Montreux this Summer for the FDCC Annual Meeting, you really ought to consider going.  LPM Vice Chairs Mike Shahloub and John Quinn along with Sheryl Willert will be presenting:


In Advance of the Crisis: An Ounce of Prevention and Preparation, a program designed to assist you in designing systems and procedures to help effectively deal with the crisis if one occurs.  There are things that lawyers and firms can do proactively to prepare for crises and to help manage it as it unfolds.  The LPM Panel will walk through some of the things we can all do today to help minimize the damage of a potential crisis tomorrow.  Given today's headline news story of the cyber-attacks arising out of the NSA code leaks, this is a "don't miss" presentation.

APRIL 2017

Wow!  Better yet - WOW!  For those among y'all who missed last week's FDCC/IADC Joint Law Firm management Conference in Chicago, I cannot tell you just how many "things one never thinks of" and "So, THAT's what y'all do!" came up.

 

Among the many takeaways from the conference were these 10 which apply to all of us across the board:

 

 1.    Read your firm's insurance policy on hacking events and check if there are sub-limits!

 2.    Check with your IT Vendor and find out exactly what service is being provided and at what cost.

 3.    If you have not conducted a firm "fire drill" with your back-up system, what are you waiting on?

 4.    Does your firm have a Succession Plan, and if not, then why and what are you doing to implement one?

 5.    Consider the role of business development as opposed to marketing.

 6.    The Big Buzz right now is artificial intelligence will soon begin to replace associates.

 7.    Predictive Technology will not only learn your habits, but it will bill your time before you can.

 8.    Millennials do not live to work - they work to live. 

 9.    Balancing the preservation of the law firm culture with the flexibility of remote and virtual practice.

10.   Have you read your insurance policy yet?  Checked on your IT vendor yet?  What are you waiting for?

 

Kudos to FDCC Superstars such as John Trimble, Mike Bonasso, Bob Christie, and Kile Turner for amazing and thought-provoking presentations!  Mega-kudos to FDCC's own Johnny Sarber for putting together a conference and program which will affect the practice of all attendees going forward.
