Implementing Practice Management After Law Firm Mergers

When two firms merge, it is an opportune time to take a fresh look and reassess the combined firm's practice management structure. Strong practice management may enable the newly combined firm to achieve higher profitability, obtain higher value work and enhance its client base. Even though the legal profession has experienced a period of peak profitability, most law firms have not fully capitalized upon their size and resources because they are still operating along office lines, or even worse, individual partner lines.
