Lawyers Weekly editor Jerome Doraisamy and Commonwealth Bank national head of professional services Daniela Pasini serve as co-hosts, with Mills Oakley partner and head of cyber and insurance Jason Symons and Hamilton Locke partner and head of restructuring and insolvency Nick Edwards joining to discuss what are the most pertinent traits of partners who have been able to build and maintain successful practice groups, how they look to develop those skills in emerging firm leaders, and how emerging technologies can and will support the development of such skills moving forward.

Mr Symons and Mr Edwards also detail how to build out a team to manage client demand, addressing future risks, forward-looking skills that will be required, fostering diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces in a post-pandemic environment, and the advice they have for those coming through the ranks in acquiring all the necessary tools to be a successful, modern law firm partner.
