Legal business management and their vision for the future
DLA Piper’s international COO on a global vision for legal business
We speak to directors
across all the roles in top 100 firms: CMS, Lewis Silkin, Mayer Brown, Mishcon de Reya, Nabarro and Simmons & Simmons
Insight from the best suppliers, including sponsor Thomson Reuters Elite
Legal really is the most fascinating place to work, right now. Ok, it’s not the ISS or the UN, but it’s poised on the edge of great change seemingly every day. That’s why we love covering it from the perspective of it being a business – a business that happens to deliver legal services.
In this, the second People issue of Briefing, we interview seven legal business leaders in some of the brightest firms in play – and we speak to 11 of the companies working with legal businesses to transform the market, including issue sponsor Thomson Reuters Elite.
EVOLUTION IN FAST FORWARD
Andrew Darwin, DLA Piper’s international COO, talks to Briefing about working at the top of the world’s largest global firm – and facing up to tomorrow’s competitive challenges.
