What is Solid ?

SOLID is a TED-STYLE Talk summit focused on innovation and the business of law. Did you ever listen to a great SOLID Talk or panel and wish you had time to engage and brainstorm in real time on how to apply those ideas to your business? 14 speakers will give TED-STYLE talks around the intersection of innovation, advanced technology and the business of law. They share what they are doing, how they are doing it, and the business impact it has.

Our talks are followed by facilitated table talks, sprint panels, and town hall discussions, whereby participants discuss what they know now that they did not know before the session started and how to apply these lessons to their own organizations. SOLID provides participants with maximum interaction with peers and colleagues in a round table, workshop environment to assess current challenges and design concrete solutions.

Wellness in the Legal Community - Lawyering While Human

Mental Wellness is a growing problem in all industries, but in law firms and corporate legal departments depression and other issues of mental wellness are sometimes seen as a weakness. How do we change the stigma? How do we change the model of work first and always? Data supports that recognizing this as a problem and coming up with solutions to protect the well being of your team gives you less turnover, higher output and a more collaborative environment. In addition to being a partner at a firm and an adjunct professor at NYU Law, Mike is CEO of Lawyering While Human - and changing the mindset of law firms and legal departments.
