BLS Managing Partners Dinner hears Law Society CEO set out challenges ahead


BLS kicked off the first major event of the year on 18 March, when it hosted the local Managing Partners dinner at Brasserie Blanc with guest speaker, Catherine Dixon, new CEO of the Law Society.

Over 30 people attending the annual event, with more local firm Partners having met Catherine at a roundtable event focused on the smaller and niche practices in city which was held at The Law Library earlier in the day.

Catherine gave a very interesting speech reflecting upon her first 3 months at The Law Society and was keen to engage with the Managing Partners on the legal market and the strategic challenges they face in running their practices and their thoughts as to how The Law Society can best serve its members in the future.  In particular she was interested to hear views on competition in the marketplace; ‘Brand Solicitor’; legal education; professional and regulatory standards and the digitalisation of services. Taking into account this feedback, The Law Society will then be looking to set out its new 3-5 year strategy focusing on the issues that are of most concern to and of benefit to its members.
