Building the leadership skills required for success

Your firm relies on the people it employs. As a "knowledge business", they are your most valuable asset.

 

So developing their knowledge and skills is a business-critical issue. Every good lawyer is up-to-date on the law, but they must also understand how to support your firm's strategy, business objectives and client relationships in a way that maximises profitability and minimises risk.

 

An integrated learning & development structure goes way beyond arranging a few training courses, however. It starts with the firm's strategy and builds a progressive programme for lawyers at all levels to help them contribute to your business in the most appropriate manner.

 

This is where the Lexington Academy will help you.

 

Our team has exceptional experience of running top quality training courses in all aspects of law firm management. Importantly, they also have experience of designing and implementing learning & development structures which are intrinsically linked to firm strategy.

 

We are currently working with firms on programs helping:

  • Senior lawyers develop their team leadership and people management skills.

  • Design partner promotion processes.

  • Firms develop their value-based pricing and negotiation skills.
