My old law firm held a retreat one year. The theme was “one-firm.” We even had tee shirts with the slogan on the back and firm name on the front. There was only one slight problem-The tee shirts told a lie. Our firm was a bunch of very talented lawyers operating independently from one another.
I believe to be successful, you must be willing to look inward and figure out what is important to you. So, at the risk of being too touchy-feely, I want to share some thoughts on that.
Six years ago, March 3, 2006 (it seems like yesterday) I spoke to the Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA)…
Is your law firm all you want it to be? Have you thought about what you want your firm to be?
When I practiced law I wanted my law firm to be like this:
- Puts its clients first and focuses on providing extraordinary service to those clients. The firm has client and industry based teams.
