Since the implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007 (LSA) the role of law firm leadership has assumed a new importance. Managing Partners and incoming CEOs will be faced with huge choices about how to direct and lead their firms and are faced with choices that will ultimately affect their survival.

These challenges come not just from the impact of the LSA, or the economy, but from the ever pressing need to provide sustainable, repeatable and profitable legal services to a constantly changing client base.

Leadership for Law Firms contains integrated research and anecdotal findings from over 50 interviews with Managing Partners and other experts. The report offers insights and practical guidance on the particular challenges faced by contemporary law firm leaders. The book provides:-

  • a definition of leadership
  • what firms need from a leader and the qualities a leader should offer
  • types of leadership strategies to adopt
  • how the LSA might specifically affect the selection, retention, and succession of law firm leaders •
  • guidance for those in or contemplating leadership roles, and for those who appoint them.
This report offers invaluable advice for established firms and those new to the market.
