Which Way Now Seminar

Staying Ahead of Your Competitors

An afternoon seminar on the impact of ABS’s, mergers and acquisitions, network choices and franchise opportunities or whether remaining independent may be the most beneficial option.

Key Strategic Business Leader and Prolific Author, Andrew Hedley, will guide you on the impact.   Andrew will share with you his personal experience of the success strategies currently shaping the UK’s legal services sector.  In the future, successful firms will position themselves at the forefront of the profession.  Those firms will require a clear strategy that is meticulously executed to ensure success.  They will succeed because they run a better legal services business not by continually improving their legal knowledge.

These firms will have 3 things in common:

  1. Clarity of work type.
  2. Clarity of client focus.
  3. Clarity of alignment of their business model.

The alliance of these 3 critical success factors will ensure they deliver superior value to their clients and generate sustainable profits for their owners.


Seminar Objectives

You will receive strategic guidance and key insights from one of the market leaders enabling you to consider the emerging opportunities with confidence in context of your firm.  You will acquire an understanding of:

  • The changing legal world and its implications for you and your continuing successful business.
  • Are we fine as we are or do “two need to become one”?  Mergers are not always the perfect partnership.
  • The impact of the “new kids on the block” and whether there’s room for all of us?

The seminar will be a mix of plenary sessions with discussions and group work. Andrew will share his experience and provide clear guidance. Topics for discussion will include ABS's, mergers and acquisitions, network choices and franchise opportunities or whether remaining independent would be the most beneficial option for you.

You will hear him explain positioning strategies and their impact on day to day tasks as well as the regulatory management  implications.  You will have a greater understanding of your options and choices and their implications for you and your firm.  Whilst strategic positioning often requires you to confidently undertake a high level strategic review, you will also learn the small changes that can positively affect your firm and your clients.
