Your Legal Business: Law Firm Structure and Management in a Changing Marketplace

Seminar Paper | Presenters: Don Thomas, Director, Thomas & Co Lawyers Limited (incorporating Titirangi Law Centre); Prue Tyler, Director, SHIFT Advisory Limited; Sam Bassett, Director, Moore Stephens Markhams (Auckland) | Chair: Geoff Hardy, Partner, Martelli McKegg Structure is merely a vessel for a legal business, not a solution. It will not change the firm culture or make the firm profitable. As with any business, success is your customer service and relationships – you will stand or fall on those. Looking at the various options for structure and set-up, this seminar will provide insights into what will best enable you to deliver to clients while maximising your returns, whether financial and/or lifestyle – in short, how to choose and implement a structure to suit you and the way you work, rather than vice versa.

Commercial Law Series: Tailoring Constitutions for Small Businesses

Webinar Paper | Presenter: Steve Dukeson, Principal, Dukesons Business Law Although not mandatory for New Zealand companies, constitutions are commonplace – and for small businesses are often the sole governance document. But are they crafted and drafted as well as they should be to meet the particular needs and wishes of the client? Looking at key (but perhaps not obvious) clauses to consider including in a constitution, as well as the interface with the Companies Act and with any shareholders’ agreement, this webinar will assist practitioners to design constitutions that suit small-business clients rather than trying to fit those clients into standard configurations and the risks that course may entail.
