  • Session 1: Shelby Austin

    May 13, 2014

    • 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.
      Shelby Austin Partner, Legal Project Solutions, Deloitte Canada, Toronto, Ontario

      Have you seen a better way of doing things and thought, “this is a viable business idea,” “law firms would buy this service,” or “clients would buy this product?”

      Turn your musings into a reality. Shelby Austin will share what it takes to “make it” as a legal entrepreneur. Shelby is a Partner with Deloitte Forensic, leading their Legal Project Solutions service offering – which largely used to be her company, ATD Legal Services PC (“ATD”) in Toronto, before Deloitte acquired it. She is the recipient of several awards, including Lexpert Magazine’s Rising Stars award given to Canada’s leading lawyers under 40, and the Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 award given by the Women’s Executive Network. ATD was also recently named one of Canada’s Hot 50 companies by Profit Magazine.

        Shelby will touch on:
      • Her experiences as a legal entrepreneur – founding a legal start-up and growing it from the ground up
      • Deloitte’s acquisition of ATD Legal Services PC
      • The emergence of entrepreneurship in the legal profession and the future of the legal services industry
      • Important skills – for law students and managing partners – to stay relevant and valuable to clients
