NC Managing Partner Summit
March 12, 2019
NC State Bar Headquarters
Last year, 80 participants representing 67 law firms from 46 cities across North Carolina spent a day at the NC State Bar headquarters located in downtown Raleigh. This year’s Summit is designed to provide education, networking and leadership opportunities for North Carolina managing partners and law firm leaders.
Timothy B. Corcoran is a keynote speaker, consultant, author, and legal commentator. With deep experience spanning two decades as a corporate executive, he guides law firm and law department leaders through the profitable disruption of outdated business models. Tim is a faculty member in the Legal Lean Sigma Institute and a Fellow and Trustee in the College of Law Practice Management. Tim also authors the widely read Corcoran’s Business of Law blog.
Tim’s confident and irreverent stage presence enables him to bring levity to topics of particular gravitas, while masterfully navigating tough discussions from a refreshing perspective. Audiences cite Tim’s simplification of complex concepts, a reduced learning curve, and actionable take aways as key factors in catalyzing their change process.
As a change agent, Tim’s focus is on helping law firms operationalize their strategy: profiting from experience through project management and process improvement; embracing profitable alternative fee arrangements; assessing and redesigning partner compensation plans; designing new financial metrics and dashboards; building or reorganizing an effective ecosystem; training current and future leaders; succession planning; refining business development skills; and launching new technology tools.
