The Price of Leadership in Law Firms

Simply put, if the job of a manager is "to make the trains run on time," the job of a leader is to ask where we should lay the tracks - or, perhaps, to suggest that it`s time to close down the railroad and start an airline. Most law firms are reasonably well managed but seriously under led. At a time of dramatic change in the legal market, this deficiency can be fatal. Having an effective leader as managing partner, though certainly not a panacea, can go a long way to helping a firm weather the storm of change going on all around us.
