Partnerships Courses

Partners have unique responsibilities within a law firm and these courses provide the foundation for any partner whether they are new to the position or established partners.

Governance - Harnessing Your Might - Nick Jarrett-Kerr
Law firms – along with every other commercial organisation – need to decide how best they should organise themselves to be successful. In addition, more and more external stakeholders – such as banks, insurers and regulators – are reviewing the internal management hierarchies and partnership structures of law firms to help them decide whether or not the firm is well coordinated and managed and employs a coherent governance structure. This course will enable participants to review the structure, governance and organisation of their firm and adjust or transform it to meet current and future needs as well as to align it to the firm’s strategy. Corporate structures will be considered as well as the more traditional partnership and LLP structures.
