The Lawyer Business Leadership Summit, held over 28th and 29th September 2016 at the Brewery in the City of London, will see a gathering of senior thought leaders from the legal services industry networking with other professionals from across the rapidly changing legal services market.

Sylvie is a former corporate lawyer, with specific expertise advising large global businesses on issues such as executive remuneration, equity incentives and corporate governance. She was most recently a partner at Allen & Overy . Paul Heugh is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Skarbek Associates. Previously he was Vice President, Global Strategic Projects for GlaxoSmithKline, sitting on the leadership team of the Global Consumer Healthcare business.

The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards are designed to recognise excellence among business services individuals and teams working in law firms, barrister’s chambers and other legal services providers across the entire market.

The categories have been tailored to reflect the unprecedented changes facing the industry today, and aim to showcase best practice and innovation in operations, technology, HR, financial management and client service, rewarding professionals that are in the vanguard of helping fee-earners deliver top-quality legal services in the face of fierce competition, new market entrants and revolutionary technological advances.
