To map

THE FUTURE SUCCESS FACTORS OF LAWYERS

 A new landscape for legal work necessitates an updated strategic map for talent management. Those who successfully navigate the new normal will have a competitively bleeding edge

Evidenced-based law firm practice trumps tradition. Law firms are steeped deeply in a tradition that in some respects simply is outdated. Lawyer-specific research has the power to generate actionable approaches to effectively address some of the greatest talent management challenges in the industry. 

I work in long-term partnerships with law firms to develop

ROI robust talent management strategies for the new normal,

based on lawyer-specific research.
