Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin will be speaking at Emory University Law School’s Institute for Complex Litigation and Mass Claims 2018 Leadership Conference from January 18-19, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. Ms. Martin will be featured on the panel “Lawyers as Managers.”
The panel will discuss how law firm partners manage younger lawyers and staff, how to maximize productivity and work-life balance, the perception of how good managers often end up in management-intensive roles but are perceived as doing less valuable work, and the business case for incentivizing good management. Other panel topics include: Framing the Leadership Challenge; Next Generation Solutions; MDL Leadership; Taboo Questions and Other Unmentionables; and Beyond the Conventional Wisdom.
The leadership conference aims to bring together federal judges, corporate counsel, and experienced lead counsel from both the defense and plaintiff bars to assess diversity and inclusion within the leadership ranks of class action and multidistrict litigation.
