"Technology will play a key role in the delivery of legal services over the next decade and Mr. Kaplan is well placed to provide a unique and insightful view of what lies ahead from the perspective of an attorney.”
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 26, 2011
BigHand, the global leader in voice productivity technology, has partnered with Ari Kaplan, author of Reinventing Professional Services: Building Your Business in the Digital Marketplace (Wiley, 2011), to fuel a collective conversation about what the next decade has in store for law firms. The series of complimentary Executive Luncheons, taking place in 12 cities across the US and Canada, is entitled: “Recovery, Renewal and Reinvention: Navigating the Next Decade,” and a further reflection of BigHand’s commitment to helping educate the North American legal industry.
Steve Butterworth, President and CEO of BigHand Inc., commented:
“Given the challenges law firms have faced in recent times and, for many, the need to reflect, reassess and reposition what they offer in the current economic climate, BigHand saw an opportunity to team up with Mr. Kaplan and offer law firm executives this education-based series of talks. Technology will play a key role in the delivery of legal services over the next decade and Mr. Kaplan is well placed to provide a unique and insightful view of what lies ahead from the perspective of an attorney.”
Mr. Kaplan has spoken at numerous legal organizations across North America and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog, on CNN, the ABA Journal, and CNET Radio. He was the keynote at the 2010 ABA Tech Show and served on the Law Technology News Editorial Advisory Board.
Mr. Kaplan commented:
"In a recovering market, providers of professional services must harness the power of technology to reinvent their approach to client and career development success."
During the talks, Mr. Kaplan will be touching on the research conducted for his new book, launching in June, Reinventing Professional Services: Building Your Business in the Digital Marketplace (Wiley, 2011).
The Executive Luncheons, hosted by local law firms, will take place in the following cities: New York, NY (06/01/11), Washington, DC (06/02/11), Boston, MA (06/03/11), Charlotte, NC (06/07/11), Philadelphia, PA (06/08/11), Houston, TX (06/09/11), Dallas, TX (06/010/11), Chicago, IL (06/14/11), Minneapolis, MN (06/15/11), Toronto, ON (06/21/11), San Francisco, CA (06/22/11), and Los Angeles, CA (06/23/11).
