What’s Hot and What’s Not in the Legal Profession

This—our 27th annual report on what’s going on in the legal profession—has been the most difficult of all these reports to write because of the continuing and sometimes conflicting changes in the profession which many firms still have not recognized or accepted.

Faced with the challenge of growing—or even surviving— in recent years, more firms have increased their recruiting of lateral entries.

Most law firms, regardless of size, generally depend on a few rainmakers to generate new business. What many lawyers fail to realize, however, is that the ability to develop new business isn’t a natural talent that is bestowed at birth. Most rainmakers are made, not born. In other words, lawyers who learn the basic techniques—and […]

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SAY “NO”

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SAY “NO”

The Managing Partner of one of our clients recently said to me, “The hardest thing in the world for most lawyers is to decline an opportunity for increased business, even when it’s because of a conflict or a question of ethics.” There’s obviously no question about having to say “no” in those situations.
