Please join us at the upcoming Roundtable series to help your firm plan for and manage senior partner retirement and succession.

This should be a firm priority because:

• Client relationships require it. Without a prepared successor known to and accepted by the client, clients may use a senior partner’s departure to change firms.
• Future leaders expect it. Young partners who are the firm’s future leaders and rainmakers must believe that if they stay at the firm, they will have good prospects for business growth, professional advancement and leadership.
• Firm culture and continuation require it. Without a transition process, senior partner retirement means the loss of institutional knowledge, acquired wisdom, role models of professionalism and; success, and networks of critical business and professional contacts.
• Risk management requires it. If retiring partners leave behind successors who are not fully prepared, it may jeopardize the firm’s ability to tackle the complex business and management issues confronting it.

The ROUNDTABLE will be led by Ida Abbott, President of Ida Abbott Consulting.
