upcoming In-Person Event 2024

Solicitors Growth Summit 2024

We invite you to a day dedicated to your professional and personal growth, filled with information, inspiration, connection and fun.



In an ever-evolving legal landscape, the demands on solicitors, particularly those in SME general practice, have never been greater.

Compliance concerns, financial stress, staff and client pressures, and the overall weight of running a practice can be overwhelming.

It's time for a change. It's time for the Solicitors Growth Summit 2024.

What is the Solicitors Growth Summit?

At Solicitors Growth Network, we do things a little differently, taking a more holistic approach to our roles as solicitors. That’s why we have designed our Summit to cover practical insights for general practice solicitors to learn how to survive and thrive in the ever-evolving legal landscape.


Our conference theme is "The Evolution of General Practice", and is tailored to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge you will need to adapt and succeed. Our focused sessions cover a range of important topics including leadership, resilience, finance, marketing, technology, customer experience (CX), and more.


The Summit is more than just a learning experience; it's an opportunity to connect with colleagues and build a supportive network. These connections are invaluable particularly for SME law firms, providing a platform for collaboration and mutual growth.


Join us to gain practical tools and insights that will help you navigate the complexities of modern legal practice. Whether you're looking to enhance your firm's operations, develop personal resilience, or simply connect with fellow solicitors facing similar challenges, the Solicitors Growth Summit is where you need to be!


Reserve your place now and take a step towards future-proofing your practice.

Here is a look back at some of the highlights of our 2022 event.


what Attendees Say About the SG SUMMIT

Before the Summit someone else raised the question "…are many people bringing partners/spouses to gala dinner?.."....after the Summit (having attended the Gala Dinner & dance), my partner wondered do the Lawyers regularly get together to laugh and dance as much as last weekends Summit!

The Summit was not your run-of-the-mill event, many colleagues I'd hazard a guess don't need the CPD points but rather see the value in meeting experts, in taking time out of their practice to work on their practice, and to grow their network of superstar colleagues. I left feeling energised not exhausted.

I have just returned from the first Solicitors Growth summit held in Kilkenny which was a most enjoyable, well organized and informative event. Solicitors Growth is filling an important gap in the solicitors community bringing together colleagues from all parts of Ireland and putting them in touch with each other. I suspect that filling that role is likely in the longer term to be even more significant than their provision of substantive CPD content .Congratulations to Flor, Martin, Catherine, Sarah and the entire team'.

Collegiality, camaraderie, confidentiality, approachability, educational, informative
