He is also the author of the critically-acclaimed book, Avoiding Extinction: Reimagining Legal Services for the 21st Century.

The speech is entitled The Great Legal Reformation and will discuss how the successful law firm of 2025 will emerge from the choices made by law firm leaders today. In order to create competitive advantage and deliver superior financial returns, law firms need to understand and adapt to the changing ecosystem in which they now live, as well as forecasting what that ecosystem will look like 10 or more years down the road; long term vision and strategy have therefore never been more important for law firms. Mitch Kowalski, examines the challenges law firms face now and in the future – then uses this perspective to suggest a provocative model for the successful law firm of 2025.
