my one mission:

Mapping

THE SUCCESS FACTORS OF the new normal in law firms

Tectonic shifts in legal work necessitates an updated strategic map for talent management. Those who successfully navigate these unchartered waters will have a competitively bleeding edge

I encourage law firms to join me in my mission. The specific aim of my research is to add precision and knowledge to the process of redesigning HR strategy, and the way legal work gets done in law firms, and thereby make it fully aligned with the new conditions.

Areas of my research in the new normal encompass recruiting, training, leadership, HR strategy, and gender inclusion.
