"Succession Planning"
DRI Managing Partner Conference
September 6, 2018 - Chicago, Illinois




"Attending the Managing Partner Forum for the first time this year, as a speaker, was an honor – and an eye-opener. People talk about being client-centric, but John Remsen demonstrates what that means. He is personally and deeply committed to ensuring that attendees receive information, insights and opportunities to discuss the subjects that matter most to them. Toward that end, he was meticulous about everything, including preparing the faculty more thoroughly than almost any other conference I've been in. His energy and enthusiasm infused the entire event and his organizational skills made its execution flawless. No wonder managing partners return year after year!"

Did You Know?

According to the 2015 Thomson Reuters and Managing Partner Forum Mid-Size and Small Law Firm Survey, the larger the firm, the more likely it has a firm-wide strategic plan. Among firms with fewer than thirty (30) lawyers, sixteen percent (16%) report having a strategic plan, compared to sixty-three (63%) of firms in the 80-174 lawyer range.

"An extraordinary professional with keen insight into the industry of law. He blends his great intellect with common sense and vast knowledge of law firm management. Without John and his organization there would be many managing partners adrift. Some call him the “rudder” of the business of law."
