Tim Hastings, Nelsons chief executive, outlined the challenges law firms now face with the market opening up to non-traditional services suppliers.
Andy Poole, of Armstrong Watson, spoke about mergers and acquisitions within the legal sector, while Mac Mackay, managing partner of Duncan Alexander & Wilmshurst, looked at marketing and motivating staff.
Marie Walls, business development director and head of Connect2Law services at Nelsons, said: "Nelsons is the hub firm for the East Midlands region of Connect2Law, now the largest and most successful legal referral network run by lawyers for lawyers, with more than 2,500 member law firms.
"In our region, more than 190 firms have joined up with Nelsons to reap the benefits of free membership.
"The conference is just one way in which we continue to offer support to members in very challenging times."
