With the full implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007 (LSA) in 2011, the relevance of leadership in law firms assumes a new importance. Managing Partners and incoming CEOs will be faced with huge choices about how to direct and lead their firms as well as decisions that may ultimately affect their survival. These challenges come not just from the impact of the LSA, rate increases in Professional Indemnity Insurance and changes in legal aid funding but also from changes in client expectation. Leadership for Law Firms contains integrated research and anecdotal findings from over 70 interviews with Managing Partners, CEOs and other experts. The report offers practical guidance on the particular challenges faced by contemporary law firm leaders.The report discusses: * the definition of leadership and how it differs from management * what firms need from a leader, and the qualities a leader should offer * matching the leader to the firms strategic needs and partner following * how decision-making structures enable or inhibit innovative leadership * career leadership - the importance of succession planning in and out of the Managing Partner role Offering invaluable advice for every law firm from the established to those new to the market, Leadership for Law Firms offers practical guidance on all aspects of leadership based on extensive original research.
