Law Firm Retreats

It’s Time to Rethink Your Retreat

 

THE MOST EXPENSIVE THING AT YOUR LAST FIRM RETREAT WAS YOUR LAWYERS’ TIME. DID YOU SPEND IT WELL?

When winning “the race to be first to be second,” is no longer a viable business strategy, you’ll need a partner to help your lawyers see beyond precedent and the status quo to prepare for the next decade. Filament can help you:

  • Reimagine your firm’s future with actionable innovation that positively impact your lawyers and clients. 

  • Rethink how your firm can deliver remarkable client service in a hyper-competitive legal marketplace.

  • Revisit your business model by moving beyond the billable hour and basic “alternative fees” towards true win-win partnerships with clients and lawyers. 

  • Recharge your firm’s culture by creating impactful talent strategies that increase diversity and inclusion while bridging generational differences.

  • Reengage your lawyers by helping them think like entrepreneurs and innovators instead of employees.

 

 

“Filament has become an indispensable innovation partner to our firm. We turn to them to help us think differently (and better) about our clients and our business.”

Katie DeBord | Chief Innovation Officer | Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner

 

DIFFERENT BY DESIGN

BUILT FOR LAWYERS  

A Filament Retreat combines creative facilitation, focused problem-solving, design thinking, and proven exercises that transform lawyers from audience members to active participants working together to solve the challenges that matter most to future-focused firms.

CREATED FOR CONNECTION

 We believe the smartest people in the room are the attendees, not the speakers. That’s why we leverage the “wisdom of the crowd” to identify creative solutions, ensure networking happens all day, and keep everyone engaged without resorting to “death by PowerPoint.”

RESULTS YOU CAN “SEE”

Every Filament Retreat includes a designer and sketch-artist to capture conversations, illustrate insights, and help visualize key messages and strategic imperatives before, during, and after your event.

BUILT FOR INNOVATION

Our firm retreats are led by Filament founder (and “recovering” lawyer) Matt Homann who has been active in the legal innovation community and facilitating unique law firm retreats for more than two decades. His legal accomplishments and awards include:

  • A legal blogging pioneer, he wrote the first legal blog focused on innovation, creativity, client service, and alternative fees called the [non]billable hour.

  • Selected by the ABA Journal as one of their first 100 “Legal Rebels.”

  • Named to the Fastcase 50 — a collection of “the smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries, and leaders in the law.”
