Introducing Business Wales’ Legal Expert Sessions; two sessions that will explore the challenges of employment and sustainability in the legal sector.

During each virtual session, our speakers will provide advice, support and share their own experiences to help you overcome these common challenges and build a more resilient business.

Session 2: Achieving Sustainability Through Effective Business Development is now free to view online, at any time.

Business development, networks and referrals are key sustainability tools for legal professionals and their organisations. Yet how the legal sector in Wales builds relationships and generates work has changed, thanks to remote working, digitisation and the changing expectations of clients.

What to expect

In our second Legal Expert Session, our experts will share how they have shaped their practices to meet the needs of modern clients and the next generation – transforming their practices with technology, digital marketing and more.

Watch our interview with Business Wales (here & below) to hear from Bronwen Raine, Business Wales’ project lead, to hear what your law firm in Wales will gain from the sessions and the tailored support on offer for your legal business.

They’ll offer you the inside track on how they’ve made their legal businesses more sustainable and in turn, more attractive to clients. We will explore how legal entities can enhance their efficiency and extend their lifespan through digitalisation.

We’ll also discuss how efficient, future-proof law firms attract talented lawyers – why and how you should engage them in the design of your legal business.

Why watch?

Legal News Wales editor, Emma Waddingham, spoke to Bronwen Raine, Project Lead at Business Wales, about these new, free Legal Expert Sessions that have been created specifically for the legal sector in Wales.

We asked Bronwen what law firms in Wales can expect from the unique expert-led sessions on recruitment and retention, and business development, what they will take away from the event and the further, new sector-specific support that Business Wales can offer to help law firms thrive and retain people and business now, and in the future.
