Join us at our exclusive roundtable events to find out how leading firms are adopting agile working practices to drive down costs, increase productivity and revenue, and improve client care.

The Agile Firm

The ever-evolving Legal and Professional Services landscape is putting increasing demands on firms to deliver greater efficiencies, more capacity, improved customer service and a more dynamic and flexible offering to both employees and customers.


Agile is truly here and pivotal in delivering sustainable, profitable growth.

Firms such as RPC, Withers, Mills & Reeve, Mercer (MMC), Wedlake Bell, Gerald Eve and Keystone Law are just a few that are embracing that change and delivering tangible benefits and competitive edge.

You can join them and many others to hear first-hand how they have achieved this and how delivering a truly Agile workplace and workflow has benefited them.

Since Agile events was established, the ways in which firms have adopted and utilised agile concepts have multiplied and shifted from the edges to the very centre of professional firm strategy and operations.

Agile resourcing

With some of the largest professional firms committing themselves to having a much higher percentage of their people on variable terms, while alternative service providers are offering clients a range of flexible resourcing options, resourcing times are changing fast.

Agile workspaces

As the efficient, green and open ‘activity based working’ environment shifts from cutting edge to industry standard, where next for professional offices?

Agile thinking

Well-established IT concepts of agile development, sprints and iteration are moving into the professional service mainstream, with design thinking, lean and agile project management changing the way professionals develop and deliver their services.

Agile tech

Cloud, SaaS and low-code technologies dominate and a rapidly rising percentage of applications are being purchased, managed and consumed outside of the IT function.

Agile information & document management

Firms are taking bolder steps and making bigger investments in the comprehensive digitisation of their client services, back and middle offices.

Agile business models

Once-concrete sector boundaries and traditional partnership models are being replaced by new funding, corporate entity, joint-venture, incubator and collaborative alternatives.

Agile organisation

Hierarchical, performance review-based models are transforming towards empowered, autonomous, continuous, collaborative systems, increasingly reflecting the expectations and preferences of millenials and Gen Z-ers.

Agile learning

Modern ways of working and living demand new ways of developing knowledge and skills in a faster, more collaborative and iterative way.
