In October and November 2006, Altman Weil, Inc. conducted interviews with two dozen thought leaders in the legal profession. Those we spoke to were chiefly managing partners and chairs of large and mid-sized U.S. law firms, along with some other key firm leaders. We also heard from general counsel, law department administrators, legal vendors and the president of a prestigious law firm network.
We spoke with them about the current state of the legal profession, its future course and the key challenges they’re facing. We asked about critical concerns, key market trends and what each organization was doing to position itself for success over the long term.
