NC Managing Partner Summit
March 12, 2019
NC State Bar Headquarters
Timothy B. Corcoran
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decades as a corporate executive, he guides law firm and law department leaders through the profitable disruption of outdated business models.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.
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.
In this keynote address, Tim Corcoran connects the dots to provide a roadmap to the new normal by drawing parallels to, and insights from, other industries in order to provide the financial basis for change. You will discover the economic rationale and incentive for change, equipping you to shift partner perspective from “adapt or die” to “adapt and thrive” and leave the program with a practical roadmap to get started.
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.
