The Leader's Role in Integrating Laterals

Here is the latest in a regular series of articles based on the work of the Managing Partner Leadership Advisory Board (“LAB”).

The LAB was created by international law practice management consultant Patrick J. McKenna and Baker & Daniels Chair Emeritus Brian K. Burke to offer recently appointed managing partners a forum in which to pose questions on issues of critical leadership importance. LAB responses derive from its members' many years' experience as law firm leaders.

QUESTION: Like many firms, we seem to have been more active, recently, in attracting talented

laterals to our firm. I read an article that stated “law firm management must take a

proactive and strategic role in planning the firm's partner integration efforts.” So, as a

brand new firm leader, what specific actions would you recommend I take responsibility

for, in helping orientate and integrate these new lawyers?
