As the legal market becomes increasingly competitive and pressurised, so too are the pressures on partners increasing. Not only are today's partners now responsible for leading, winning new business, building a brand and managing people, they are also compared and measured according to demanding financial performance criteria.

Managing Partner's report The Role of the Law Firm Partner features insightful case studies, analysis and guidance on the most pertinent issues facing partners in the current legal market. It provides vital insight into the critical success factors of this demanding role and how it can be developed to maximise value for both partners and their firms.

  • The role of the partner in a global context - Duties, traits and KPIs;
  • The advantages of existing and alternative partnership structures;
  • Partner selection and lateral hiring practices - and gaps;
