Law Firm Retreats & Conferences:<br>Use Your Retreat to Make Great Strides Forward

Law firm retreats and conferences are unique times for partners to confront tough issues, change the firm's direction, focus on a strategic plan, and/or develop a consensus. A successfully custom-designed retreat can achieve more than you hoped to get done in an entire month. Ed Poll's many years of practical, broad experience on all sides of the table can help you get the most impact from your event. Leave the planning and facilitation up to LawBiz® Management, so that you can focus on the issues being addressed at your event.

"In considerable measure, due to Ed's assistance, our conference was wildly successful. Because of Ed's experience, he was able to provide our shareholders with insights as to how other firms handle some of the thorny issues we discussed. Not only did we rediscover why we enjoy practicing with each other, we developed consensus and guidelines on issues I thought we'd never resolve."

"Ed's broad expertise of the legal industry was invaluable to the success of our firm's retreat. He expertly provided guidance regarding the separate yet connecting parts in forming a healthy whole. He accurately assessed our firm's needs and responded appropriately. Ed was highly sensitive to delicate firm issues, both explicit as well as implicit."
