McKenna's International Review Magazine - Fall 2014
International Review is my 24-page glossy, printed magazine
distributed to over 1600 law firm chairs and managing partners throughout North
Our Fall issue begins with a
piece entitled, Perspectives On Firm
Strategy which contains seven thought-provoking ideas on everything from
becoming distinctive to quantifying and communicating real value to clients.
In our First 100 Days program (see back cover) we introduce
new firm leaders to the monumental task of taking the reins of leading their
firms. When Firm Leaders Transition provides prescriptive counsel and
specific steps to both the departing firm leader and their successor on what
they need to do to facilitate an effective transition.
Once again, my good friend and colleague Ed Reeser joins me
in The Question of Partner Compensation
Guarantees cautioning how, while providing guarantees can be a legitimate
transitioning tool for incoming laterals, these same guarantees can also
present firms with some real problems when best intentions and future forecasts
Finally, Create Your
Stop Doing List is some straight-forward guidance on how to keep the urgent
from crowding out the important, while Integrating
Laterals provides pragmatic advice on how to best integrate the key talent
that you have spent so much time, effort and expense attracting to your firm.
As always, I sincerely hope that you find practical ideas,
tips and techniques here that you can put to use immediately. Please send me your observations, critiques,
comments and suggestions with respect to any of these articles.
