  • Competitive Landscape
  • Firm Structures and Governance
  • People, Finances, Marketing, and Technology
  • Law Firm Management: A Client Perspective
  • Risk Management
  • Pro Bono Practice
  • The Future of the Law Firm

“This program pulls back the curtain on what it means to be a law firm partner and the role of partners in law firms, especially in these challenging times,” said Toni Jaeger-Fine, an assistant dean at Fordham Law School. 

Amadeu Ribeiro, the Mattos Filho partner in charge of the firm’s New York office, added: “We are bringing together law firm leaders and clients in a single forum to discuss strategically how to make meaningful contributions to the management of law firms.”

The program is open to all but is highly recommended for senior associates, counsel, partners, and non-lawyer leaders at law firms. The program will take place online and will meet two hours per week (Monday and Friday 8:00-9:00 a.m., New York time), from February 22-May 17, 2021.
