How Would You Help a Rainmaker Who Chases Good Associates Away?


I have been working on a business parable book for the last couple of years with Brice Voran, a former Shearman and Sterling partner, who is now of counsel. We are finally finished and getting the book ready to be published and available on Kindle. The book is about David, a rainmaker, in a large Houston firm for whom no associates want to work.

David, is a top rainmaker bringing in big clients. Yet, his team, including those who make partner, leave and join other firms. David is a composite of partners of mine and partners I encountered during my career and have met in other firms.

Your firm might have a David. You might be David and not even realize it.
