The New Managing Partner

This year, the managing partners in a number of law firms around the country will step down from their posts and watch as new leaders take on their firm’s top management position. Most often, the change in a firm's leadership happens smoothly, is viewed as a positive move internally and has little immediate impact on the firm as a whole. Unfortunately, we also have witnessed problematic transitions that disrupt the firm and invariably lead to hard feelings. Given the leadership changes planned throughout the country, it is a good time to address some of the challenges former managing partners and their successors may face during the transition period.
