Current state of play: How Law Firms are Adopting Responsible Business Strategies
Law firms face many choices as they develop their responsible business strategies, as they try to navigate the needs and desires of their different stakeholders at the same time as managing limited budgets. Drawing on in-depth analysis of 125 large law firms, this session will reveal how approaches differ on each side of the Atlantic, what’s best practice and what strategies are becoming table stakes for any firm who wants to be seen as a credible responsible law firm.
The analysis has shown that many firms are either green-washing or green-hushing – there is a communications gap which most firms need to address. We will also draw a comparison to the big Four and other leading professional services firms, to show where the leading law firms might have to go next. The session will also draw on research from global surveys of clients of and talent at law firms, revealing how they see their firms performing against today’s responsible business expectations, and suggest ways in-house departments can work proactively with their law firms to engender positive change.
