2017 National Insight Symposium Tour

For most law firms, practicing law is the easy part. Juggling profit margins, staying on top of business competition, keeping up with the rise of technology and data security, mapping out a succession plan, combating social and generational factors... It’s clear that maintaining your firm’s competitive balance in the legal sector is a constant challenge.

Now in its fourth year, Cushman & Wakefield’s Bright Insight Symposium Tour will share the intelligence gathered from our 2017 National Legal Sector Benchmark Survey from over 1,500 domestic law firm and associate respondents. This presentation will provide an exclusive look into the key business, financial and operational drivers that are impacting today’s legal sector, and the future trends that will continue to influence the competitive marketplace for the next decade and beyond.

From business development and technology to succession planning and future trends, attendees of the Symposium will be provided with a deeper look into the survey results and their impact on law firms across the country. Each year, Cushman & Wakefield’s Bright Insight Symposium Tour provides the most comprehensive snapshot of the legal sector’s present and future benchmarks and trends. This year’s new and exciting program continues this tradition.
