Brooks Pierce partner Ed Winslow has been invited to speak at the 2017 World Conference of Geneva Group International (GGI) taking place from Oct. 19-22 in Vienna, Austria. GGI is a worldwide alliance of independent law, audit, tax, accounting and professional advisory firms ranked among the largest such organizations in the world, with 566 member firms in 123 countries. Winslow’s topic is “The Aging of Lawyers and What Can Be Done to Stop It.”
Following his presentation, Winslow will lead a panel discussion of lawyers and accountants from France, Germany, Washington, D.C. and Wichita, Kansas, in which the panelists will address progressive management practices of professional services firms responding to the retirement of the “baby boom” generation, including succession planning, creative roles for senior professionals and alternatives to complete retirement.
Winslow, former managing partner of Brooks Pierce, has practiced law for over 40 years, with a focus on litigation, corporate law and banking and financial services. He is the current chairman of the board of trustees for the North Carolina State Bar Plan for Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts and was the first North Carolina attorney appointed to the American Bar Association’s Commission on the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts. He is also the chairman of the board of trustees for Guilford College and a past member of the board of governors of the North Carolina Bar Association. He served as general counsel for the North Carolina Bankers Association for several decades.
