With the advent of Alternative Business Structures (ABSs), there is likely to be intensified competition in the recruitment and retention of legal talent.

The book examines both legal and broader managerial issues, placing both firmly in the context of the modern legal business. The book also covers:

  • employment law framework and essential polices and procedures
  • internal dispute procedures and post termination restraints
  • the most pertinent discrimination law issues
