Legal Support Network (LSN) has launched the first ever conference to specifically target practice managers and practice directors in small to medium law firms.

Scheduled for Thursday 17 May 2012 in London UK, this unique event will examine the role of the practice manager in a changing legal world and the challenges practice managers and their firms face as the market changes shape.

The event has been launched in response to LSN research which unearthed how isolated practice managers in SME law firms can be. As non-lawyers with unique multi-disciplinary roles, with no specific practice manager events in the marketplace to attend, until now, practice managers can often feel isolated internally as well as from their peers.

LSN’s Legal Practice Management conference will offer practice managers a rare opportunity to make valuable new contacts, discuss common challenges and hear the latest thinking and ideas.

Featuring an expert panel of legal practitioners from the likes of Last Cawthra Feather, Breeze & Wyles, Paris Smith, Stepien Lake, Lewis Hymanson Small, Curwens, Chafes and Berwins, this unique event will enable practice managers to hear how to address their biggest challenges directly from their peers.

Supported by DPS Software, Elite, Financial Times, IRIS Legal Solutions, Sweet & Maxwell, Syscap and Voicepath, law firms already registered to attend include:

Magrath Ÿ drydensfairfax Ÿ Burnett Barker Ÿ Mason Bullock Ÿ Enoch Evans Ÿ Morrisons Ÿ Preston Redman Ÿ Shentons Ÿ JB Leitch Ÿ Heppenstalls Ÿ Taylors Legal Ÿ Steel & Shamash Ÿ Levison Meltzer Pigott Ÿ BrookStreet des Roches Ÿ Simons Muirhead & Burton Ÿ CM Murray Ÿ and many more!
