The Law Firm of the Future

During the “golden age of law firm growth” from the late 1960s until 2007, most large law firms adopted a default growth strategy, increasing practice areas and offices, aided by the momentum of the tail winds of law firm growth. Since the recession of 2008-2009, however, the legal marketplace has drastically changed. In this timely book, Jay Westcott suggests strategic building blocks that firms can adopt in order to adapt themselves to this radical change and prosper as lasting institutions.

Bright Ideas

Globalization of business has driven a paradigm shift in corporate legal services internationally, changing how multinational corporations, their in-house legal departments and their law firms interrelate. The demands caused by international business growth require companies to confront scores of legal issues in many different countries, at the same time. Numerous factors have converged to elevate the impact of law and compliance on global business today. Understanding and responding to these factors is paramount to the success of inside and outside counsel. In this book, E. Leigh Dance presents 26 essays written by current and past heads of legal at global companies including: Azko Nobel, EADS, Fiat, FMC Technologies, Hilton, Honeywell, Lenovo, Marsh & McLennan and Schering-Plough, as well as leaders of global law firms including DLA, Eversheds, K&L Gates, Latham & Watkins, Orrick, Paul Hastings and other top legal industry experts. "This collection of 26 impressive essays, skillfully edited by Leigh Dance, creates a superb textbook for leaders as they consider current and future strategies, whether as global law firms or corporate law departments. A unique compendium of global perspectives and ideas, it makes very useful reading for all who are working to chart a course in these unprecedented times." -Ralph Baxter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Orrick "Leigh Dance has managed to replicate in a book the excitement of a rich roundtable discussion among industry leaders. Reading it is like sitting in on an intimate exchange of practical experience, personal insights, and critical thinking about global business law, now and into the future. I highly recommend 'Bright Ideas.'" -Nino Cusimano, General Counsel, Telecom Italia "The legal industry is a time machine speeding through generations of change in a blink of an eye. Leigh Dance and her collaborators understand that such movement doesn't count as progress unless it is infused with bright ideas and intelligent execution. She has collected and presented those ideas in a highly readable form." -Peter Kalis, Chairman and Global Managing Partner, K&L Gates "Jump in, and profit from the many superb ideas and thought-provoking perspectives advanced in these pages, by an outstanding list of legal luminaries." -Jan Eijsbouts, former General Counsel, Akzo Nobel

Developing Knowledge Based Client Relationships

These forces, combined with other factors, are leading to a powerful, accelerating trend to commoditization, making it increasingly difficult for professional service firms to differentiate their offerings.

Developing Knowledge Based Client Relationships

The publication of this book heralds a new field of management, thought and practice. The advocates of the 'knowledge economy' have to date focused almost exclusively on how managers can increase the internal productivity of their knowledge assets and intellectual capital. The important next step is understanding that a large and rapidly increasing proportion of the value of business transactions is in knowledge itself. Once this is recognized, managers must devote their attention to how to maximize the value of that knowledge to customers, and tie that directly to developing enduring and profitable relationships. Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships guides the reader to understanding the increasing importance of information and knowledge in business transactions and client relationships. It then goes on to present in an extremely practical fashion what knowledge organizations can do to enhance the value of the knowledge they deliver to clients and use that to develop profitable relationships. This is done by presenting underlying theoretical framework, a variety of tools for structuring relationships and presenting knowledge to clients, and numerous case studies and examples of firms which have implemented these concepts successfully. Fills a gap in present knowledge literature in the customer knowledge area Practical tools and effective case studies with world-recognized companies Shows how knowledge organizations of all kinds can increase their competitive edge by adding value to their clients

The Transformation of Agri Food Systems

'There should be a good market for this book. The topic is very timely and a major theme of the new World Development Report 2008. The editors and contributors are world class.' Derek Byerlee, World Bank 'This is a topic of wide interest and high policy importance. The depth of coverage and excellent synthesis should ensure that the book will have a substantial market in high-level undergraduate and graduate courses in agricultural development. It will have a solid readership among development economists and policy makers as well.' Mark Rosegrant, International Food Policy Research Institute The driving forces of income growth, demographic shifts, globalization and technical change have led to a reorganization of food systems from farm to plate. The characteristics of supply chains - particularly the role of supermarkets - linking farmers have changed, from consumption and retail to wholesale, processing, procurement and production. This has had a dramatic effect on smallholder farmers, particularly in developing countries. This book presents a comprehensive framework for assessing the impacts of changing agri-food systems on smallholder farmers, recognizing the importance of heterogeneity between developing countries as well as within them. The book includes a number of case studies from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe, which are used to illustrate differences in food systems' characteristics and trends. The country case studies explore impacts on the small farm sector across different countries, local contexts and farm types. Published with FAO
