It is vital that managers and leaders are kept up to date on best practice in their field to ensure efficiency, productivity and profitability across every department in an increasingly bleak economic landscape. However our research shows that HR departments are suffering from budget cuts that reduce the availability of funds for training and development, affecting the communication and understanding of some of the most vital business issues. With this in mind we have compiled an important new reference book. Managing Partner's Definitive Law Firm Management Guide provides individuals from heads of department to law firm leaders with a handbook that provides quick reference management guidance through issues that affect the day-to-day efficiency and success of your law firm. This unique resource offers support to managers at all levels of your firm on key issues from motivating staff and maximising their performance to delivering efficiency and profitability. This report aims to help you ensure that your management team is able to operate successfully and in line with the business goals of the organisation, however they may change within the turbulent economic climate. To clearly distinguish between different skill sets, the guide is separated into two distinct sections. Part one takes a practical approach to tackling the current issues in a number of firm management areas including: risk management and compliance, outsourcing, Information Technology, knowledge management, CSR, diversity, and the role of non-lawyer managers. Part two outlines and encourages the development of key personal management skills in core areas including: building and managing client relationships; business development; leadership; people management; and financial management capabilities. In addition, best practice case studies and examples from top law firms including; Weightmans, Hill Dickinson, Allen & Overy, Simmons & Simmons and Stephenson Harwood provide you with insight into the key management strategies that are currently succeeding in your field.
