When I was a practice group leader for our firm’s construction law practice group, I believed I had four main tasks in that role:

  • To complete and ensure implementation of our Practice Group Strategic Plan, including figuring out how our Practice Group would differentiate ourselves from competing lawyers and firms;
  • To ensure our Practice Group Members have Personal Development/Business Plans and are implementing them;
  • To ensure our associates are adequately trained; and, 
  • To make sure our Practice Group meets its planned financial targets. 

If you are a Practice Group Leader or Office Managing Partner, what do you see as your roles?
