  • One of the problems with Law firms generally is their lack of recognition of the value of anyone other than fee earning staff, and this is doubly true of senior poitions.
    Most Partners find it very difficult to accept, what the rest of the commercial world knows, that someone does not need to be a lawyer, let alone a fee earning lawyer, to understand the economics of a law firm and how to make it run better. I suspect it is a lot about ego and little about reality.
    It does explain why law firms will always be poor cousins to the Accountancy firms in terms of how professionally well run they are.

  • no, I am afraid it is the fact that a high proportion of the non lawyers brought into senior management positions have proved to be all mouth and no trousers or, in some cases, complete charlatans.

  • There is a degree of circularity and inevitability here, of course : the best managers are unlikely to go into law firms as they will almost invariably be perceived by partners as second-class citizens and they will be perceived as second class often because, in reality, if they were any good, they wouldn't have opted to be kicked around in a law firm !
