HANOVER, Maryland, April 11, 2019

HANOVER, Maryland, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Following publication of the definitive performance improvement solution: "Smarter Law: Transforming Busy Lawyers into Business Leaders" (Thompson Reuters), author Trevor Faure, consultant to Major, Lindsey & Africa Transform, former Ernst & Young Global General Counsel & Legal Services Leader, will give a series of workshops and keynotes from San Francisco to Singapore during late Spring to respond to demand for the approach authoritatively described as "the holy grail of business productivity."

Harvard Law's Professor David Wilkins says of the book: "Faure's insightful and practical analysis [is] more important than ever, and makes this…a must read for any lawyer or legal organization seeking to thrive in today's increasingly competitive and technology-driven global age." Legal On-Ramp founder Paul Lippe says: "Probably the best book I've ever read setting the stage for the new model General Counsel." Former general counsel of General Electric, Ben Heineman describes Faure as "One of the most creative and systematic thinkers about contemporary business law."

Keynotes and Smarter workshops – where specially invited legal leaders apply the transformation methodology to their specific challenges – will be held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Minneapolis, New York, Boston, London, Paris & Singapore, including annual events of ACC and the National Bar Association, between April-June 2019.

Since the first Smarter project between Tyco International and Eversheds in 2008 up to the award-winning AvisBudget transformation in 2018, the results have been as successful for law firms as it has been for their general counsel and corporate legal department clients.

For those unable to attend the events, Thomson Reuters launched its first Smarter Law podcast on its Legal Current blog: Smarter Law: Transforming Busy Lawyers into Business Leaders and available on iTunes and  major podcast platforms.

Trevor Faure, CEO of Smarter Law Solutions says: "Current developments in the profession involving EY, Thomson Reuters and major reviews of legal services launched by Smarter Law clients make the new book and global tour immediately important.
