Law Firm Retreats: They Can Be Small. They Can Be Anywhere.

Though we covered it in our Tips Tuesday roundup post a few days ago, I’d like to call your attention to an exceptional piece by Garry Wise on his upcoming Law Office Backyard Retreat.

What struck me as I was reading was the engrained conceptions many of us have about what a retreat is, and where it must be located. Depending on your own personal experience, you might believe that a firm retreat:

- must always be ‘a road trip’;

- is only applicable for larger firms;

- requires an expensive keynote speaker; or generally,

- is far too expensive an undertaking for anyone but the most profitable operations.

The thing is, all a retreat really must deliver at the end of the day is some advancement on the firm’s ‘vision & direction’, and a ‘planning component’ on how to get there. And while both pieces can certainly be done within an office setting, most firms have found that taking these meetings outside of that environment helps to inspire creativity.
