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

Managing People in a Legal Business contains invaluable guidance for law firms aiming for effectiveness and efficiency from their staff. Leading employment lawyers and HR professionals provide expert advice for both established firms and new entrants to the market.

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
  • recruitment, managing for performance, coaching and mentoring
