    ALA Webinar - Aligning Our Stars: Succession Planning for the Administrative Team

    Do you have a plan in place to replace your soon-to-retire collection specialist who knows everything about your client database?  How about the senior billing manager who handles conflict checks and invoicing?  Current demographics in most law firms, regardless of size, now make succession planning a critical issue.  You need specific strategies to transfer critical operational knowledge of day-to-day responsibilities.  Help your firm respond effectively and create a competitive advantage for the future. 

    OBJECTIVES:

         * Discuss current best practices among law firms of various sizes

         * Identify demographic and economic trends that require succession planning

         * Determine critical steps for effective succession planning

         * Develop training programs to cross train and develop individuals to succeed others

    CLM Recertification Credit:  1 hour in the subject area of Legal Industry/Business Management.
    CLM App Credit for Functional Specialists:  1 hour in the subject area of Legal Industry/Business Management.
