Podcast: Being More Focused Can Help Your Firm Be More Profitable, Data Says

NEW YORK — At the recent COO/CFO Forum, we had the chance to sit down with Dr. Evan Parker, founder of Parker Analytics, and a true pioneer in the art and science of using data analytics to help law firms make more informed decisions. Dr. Parker shared with us how he and some fellow researchers analyzed law firm data to determine where the strength of a particular firm lies. The project we discussed looked at profitability as an indicator of law firms that are better at running their organizations. In particular, the researchers looked at practice concentration as a driver of profitability. What they found was that firms with a greater focus on a smaller number of practice areas, other factors being equal, tended to be more profitable than firms with a disparate focus on a wider number of practices.

New Podcast: Up-Skilling the Legal Profession — Addressing Today’s Legal Talent Gaps

What are the skills that the legal industry needs to develop and integrate in an era of rapid technological and business model transformation? In a new podcast, Mark Cohen, CEO of Legal Mosaic, a legal business consultancy; and Daniel Rodriguez, the Harold Washington Professor at Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law, discussed this issue at length. With one representative from the academia and one more focused on the business side of law, Rodriguez and Cohen somehow manage to find common ground on the need to transform the legal workforce to accommodate the many new skill sets that are required today. The pair agreed that legal education needs to move beyond just training in legal doctrine and needs to expand to include skills related to the business side of legal practice (including the application of technology) and personal effectiveness skills such as emotional intelligence, entrepreneurial mindset, and communication. While there was agreement that those skills represent the new, broader skill set that today’s industry requires, there’s still room for discussion about how those skills are delivered, including the role of law schools and the need for lifetime learning in a rapidly changing industry. The approach of Rodriguez and Cohen has much in common with the new Delta Lawyer Competency Model, which was recently published by the Legal Executive Institute and authored by Natalie Runyon, Director of Enterprise Content Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute; and Alyson Carrel, Clinical Associate Professor of Law and Assistant Director for the Center on Negotiation and Mediation at Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law (with input from many partners across the industry).

New Podcast: Law Firm Leaders Empowered to Drive Change, But Face Obstacles, Forthcoming Report Finds

The Legal Executive Institute, in collaboration with the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) and the Georgetown Center on Ethics and the Legal Profession recently conducted a survey of law firm leaders of primarily U.S.-based law firms in the midsize to large law firm market to examine where those leaders saw the greatest potential threats to their law firms, how they plan to confront those threats, and how their law firms are approaching institutional change.    We spoke with Jim Jones from Georgetown and Oliver Yandle from the ALA to hear their take on the initial findings in this section of the report.  They shared insights from their many years of experience to help interpret the significance of the findings and advice for how law firms can begin to position themselves to work through partners resistance.   Here are a few key insights they shared: While strategies for dealing with partnership resistance will vary from firm to firm, it is vital that firms not stand still on driving change while waiting for the firms to draw near enough to the precipice of calamity that the partners finally feel compelled to act; Start with younger partners to build a culture that accepts change and the younger partners and future leaders of the firm will feel empowered to drive it forward; Compensation can play a key role in how effective change efforts will be at a given firm because lawyers, by and large, will do what their compensation system tells them is important.  The full audio of our interview with Jim and Oliver is available below.  The full report on the findings from this survey will be available through our website on October 24.  Please consider subscribing to the weekly Legal Executive Institute Newsletter to be sure you don’t miss out on the report when it’s released.

Finally, Jenrette-Thomas talks about how law firms should be making investments in future black male partners, given the amount of media attention the topic recently has received within the legal industry.

Encouraging Diversity and Inclusion by Treating People as Unique Individuals

In our new podcast, Natalie Runyon, Director of Enterprise Content for Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute and content strategist for the Next Gen Leadership: Advancing Lawyers of Color initiative sat down with Paula Edgar and Wendy Amengual Wark, partners from Inclusion Strategy Solutions. Both Edgar and Amengual Wark have deep expertise in how to build inclusive organizations that promote workplaces where everyone, including under-represented groups, can thrive and reach their full potential. In this podcast, we explore the reasons why representation of women, professionals of color, and members of the LGBT+ and disability communities as so under-resented at the corporate executive ranks and why their progress is advancing so slowly. We also debunk the myth that increasing diversity results in compromising on quality, citing the fact that research study after research study going back to the 1990s say the exact opposite. In addition, we also examine the definition of inclusion, as well as the approach of Edgar and Amengual Wark to partnering with straight white men to craft their “distance travelled” story and allow them to open up about fears of working with women in the post #MeToo era. Next, we discuss how to interrupt common norms that continue to promote gender-specific social structures that hurt both men and women. Finally, we close out our conversation by investigating the role of allies and how to activate their commitment and advocacy.
