Description

Please join us for the 4th annual Law Firm Management Committee Retreat in Sydney, Australia.

This is a unique opportunity to network with other law firm Managing Partners and others involved in law firm management from around the world. It's a great chance to meet new people and deepen existing friendships.

We will start on Friday evening 6 October 2017 with welcome drinks and dinner at a city restaurant.

On Saturday morning we will hold our business meeting. First, we will conduct a full-group planning meeting involving our six working groups (Strategy, Governance, Business Development, Talent & Leadership, Knowledge Management and Finances). Then there will be an informative presentation on a management-related topic.

International law firm Herbert Smith Freehills has kindly agreed to host us, at their offices in the Sydney CBD.

We will then proceed to Circular Quay, where we will board the Vagabond Spirit for a spectacular cruise of Sydney Harbour, including a delicious lunch.

On Saturday night we will dine at another city restaurant.

For those who are feeling adventurous, there may be a chance to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge on the Sunday morning, before making our way to the main conference, which will commence on the evening of Sunday 8 October.

This year, instead of holding a residential Retreat, we have decided to invite our participants to stay wherever they wish. This means that you will not need to change hotels during your stay in Sydney. Our central meeting venue is easily reached via public transport or taxi. Please book your own accommodation as soon as possible.

The Law Firm Management Committee collaborates very closely with other IBA committees. Therefore, we are anxious to reach out to those Committees and invite their officers to attend the Retreat, as we did last year. We will send invitations to all officers of these Committees to the extent that we know them. The Retreat offers an excellent opportunity to connect and plan work together. In addition to all of our officers, Advisory Board and Working Group members, we have invited officers of those Committees with which we have been cooperating most closely in the past, including the Young Lawyers' Committee, the Senior Lawyers' Committee, the Academic and Professional Development Committee, the Women Lawyers' Interests Group, the Regulation of Lawyers and Compliance Committee, the Multi-Disciplinary Committee and the Regional Fora. If, within your Committee, you decide that an officer who has not been personally invited should attend our Retreat, please let us know the name of the officer or other member of the Committee who will attend.

We can be sure that we will again have great social meetings and a very interesting dialogue among the participants. Therefore, we would like to strongly encourage you to participate in the Retreat. Apart from getting to know each other better, we want to review the work of our past year and make plans for the next year.

Your registration fee includes the business meeting and the lunch cruise.

The Friday and Saturday night dinners will be paid for separately by those partipants who choose to attend. We will contact you later to inquire about your intentions in relation to those two events.
