The climate and culture of law firms is changing drastically. The old model of life long stability for those who attain partnership status no longer applies. Today the ranks of partners is shrinking, ownership power is becoming more concentrated and growth is coming from new sources such as mergers and lateral entry. This article discusses how leadership training can facilitate the transition from the old model. Leadership is often confused with management.
