2018 ALPMA Summit

Shaping the Future Firm: It Starts With You
19–21 September 2018 | ICC, Sydney
2018 ALPMA Summit - Shaping the Future Firm: It Starts With You

The 2018 ALPMA Summit was an inspiring three days of thought leadership consisting of seminars, workshops and networking that pivoted around the central topic of the “Firm of the Future”.

A broad range of high profile speakers shared their insights not only into what is happening in the legal space right now, but also what they believed the disruptors would be in the coming 5-10 years and most importantly how to plan for these changes now. The program not only challenged delegates to think about how to achieve healthy profit margins for their firms today, but to think outside the box and start planning for healthy profit margins in the future. It is fair to say that this planning needs to commence today (as there is much to consider & plan for) in order for Firms to remain relevant well into the future.

The ALPMA team would like to thank our fabulous speakers, delegates and partners for their continued support of our annual Summit program.

Summit Research: What is Shaping the Future Firm?

The 2018 ALPMA GlobalX research project poses this question to Australasian law firms:

“Are you ready for the future?”

New technologies, systems and shifts in culture are pushing law firms and the legal industry to quickly adapt. But how agile are our businesses – and how prepared are we for these changes?

The 2018 ALPMA Summit was designed to help Australasian law firms and departments future-proof their business.
