The Managing Partner Forum The Managing Partner Forum (MPF) is the premiere resource for law firm managing partners and leaders to help them lead a more profitable, cohesive and sustainable law firm.
The MPF began as a one-day, CLE-approved conference for managing partners of Florida firms with ten or more lawyers. Over 80 law firm leaders participated in the inaugural Forum held in Fort Lauderdale on October 8, 2002.
Since then, The Managing Partner Forum has expanded geographically to include state–specific and regional conferences in Texas, the Southeast, the Midwest and the Northeast. To date, we have presented seventeen (17) Forums with more than 700 law firm leaders from 525 law firms in 32 states participating. They value the Forum’s high-level participants, its outstanding faculty and its highly interactive format. Many attend year after year.
BY MANAGING PARTNERS, FOR MANAGING PARTNERS
From the inception, our objective has been to provide education, networking and leadership development skills to managing partners and law firm leaders. Each year, we refine and enhance our programs based on input from participants and our Forum Advisory Boards.
TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
In 2009, we took The Managing Partner Forum to a new level. We built a content-rich Website featuring the very best articles, White Papers and other resources on topics most important to managing partners. We launched a monthly electronic newsletter featuring timely and relevant articles and White Papers.
This year, we are expanding our programs to the national stage and will present leadership conferences across the United States in 2011 and 2012. We are also pleased to announce our affiliation with Patrick McKenna and Brian Burke and their highly acclaimed program called The First 100 Days: Master Class for the New Managing Partner.
