An industry leader from Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. will give a keynote address at the Hispanic National Bar Association’s 2020 Corporate Counsel Conference and Annual Meeting (CCC-AC2020), which will be held virtually. Ken Crutchfield, Vice President and General Manager of Legal Markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., will discuss how law firms can best prepare for the future as the legal industry continues to evolve.
Ken Crutchfield will address attendees at this year’s virtual conference.
Earlier this year, Wolters Kluwer conducted the 2020 Wolters Kluwer Future Ready Lawyer Survey: Performance Drivers to assess future readiness and resilience in the legal sector. The survey includes insights from 700 legal professionals across the U.S. and nine European countries and examines ongoing trends in the legal sector and how well-prepared organizations are to drive higher performance. At CCC-AC2020, Crutchfield will discuss findings from the study, including key observations on COVID-19’s impacts on law firms, and provide insights into how firms can evolve their practice to meet the changing needs of their clients.
“I’m very pleased to participate in this year’s annual meeting and share results from the 2020 Wolters Kluwer Future Ready Lawyer Survey,” said Crutchfield. “Our industry is experiencing significant transformation, and it is increasingly important for legal professionals to understand the drivers behind that transformation in order to prepare for the future.”
“The HNBA has always strived to stay on the cutting edge of the legal profession, and our members are excited this year to hear about the insights and lessons that law firms and attorneys can apply from the 2020 Wolters Kluwer survey,” said HNBA National President Irene Oria. “We want to thank Ken and the whole Wolters Kluwer team for agreeing to kick off this very important discussion about the future of law firm innovation and performance. We look forward to continued collaborations for years to come.”
Ken Crutchfield will speak at the Law Firm of the Future event taking place at 9:30 AM EDT on Wednesday, September 23. To learn more and register, visit: hnba.com/2020-ccc-ac
