Featuring contributions from both legal practitioners and management researchers, Managing the Modern Law Firm seeks to present the latest insights from Management Studies in an approachable, practical, and relevant manner for lawyers involved directly and indirectly with the management of law firms.

MisTereO
The style of the book is too academic and definitely is not a practical book for lawyers who wanted to know the real thing. Moreover, the data and examples cited and researches conducted were completely outdated, most of them were in 1980s and 1990s and some of them in early 2000s. Not a useful book for learning the fast changing legal practice.
Keath
The writing style of this book is very boring and old school academic. It doesn't engage the reading at all. The content was okay but I did not find much of it useful in regards to strategic planning. I would recommend other books.

This book excels in managing law firm's how to's and examples. One of the greatest book I've read on law firm management.

In recent years the competitive landscape for law firms has changed irrevocably, and models of law firm management developed last century are no longer applicable in the modern world, according to Laura Empson in this book. The book consists of essays contributed primarily by a range of academics, relating particularly to business models for large US and British domestic and international law firms. Contributions include:

Laura Empson: Why partnership is a good business structure for law firms, and the systems, structures and processes needed to make it thrive.

David Wilkins: Why diversity has not worked well for US law firms and remains a challenging issue.

Gardner, Morris and Anand: New practices can be developed within a firm with the right balance of turf, expertise and support.

Uzzi, Lancaster and Dunlap: There is a relationship between the strength of firm-client ties and the prices which firms change.

Huseyin Leblebici: There are various different methods of determining charges for providing legal services, although time costing remains the most popular.

Stephen Mayson: The value of a law firm depends on its financial, human, physical, social and organizational capital.

Peter Sherer: Analysis of the profits per partner, firm size and percentage of international offices of various different clusters of US law firms.

Royston Greenwood: The effect on professional behaviour of the increasing size, complexity and competitiveness of law firms.

Tony Angel: Achieving strategic alignment in a large international law firm.

While many of the topics listed in the book's table of contents are likely to be of considerable interest to practitioners, I found the discussion in most chapters to be too general to be useful, and the topics covered represent only a tiny fraction of what is involved in actually managing a modern law firm. I was disappointed to get to the end of the book without having found any particularly challenging or surprising insights. It is interesting to look at financial data for US law firms (chapter 8), but the data used is available elsewhere and several years out of date. Issues relating to diversity (chapter 3), developing new practices (chapter 4), client relationships (chapter 5) and billing practices (chapter 6) will already be well known to law firm managers and this book has little new to add.

This book is for those involved with managing law firms, especially those impacted by the move of legal practices from partnerships to corporations and from local firms to behemoths that span the globe. The papers collected here represent recent research on current topics in the legal industry. Their goal seems to be to keep the best features of the traditional firm while accepting the efficiencies and realities of the global corporate legal firm.

The book's ten chapters cover the range of topics in the book in a paper by the Laura Empson, the editor, and Stuart Popham. Chapter 2 looks the decline of partnership and the implications of the rise of the corporate structure in legal practice. Chapter 3 looks at the issues surrounding Diversity in Europe and compares them to the lessons learned from the American experience. Chapter 4 provides a recipe for successfully adding new initiatives to your practice and why failure follows efforts that vary too much from the formula their research revealed.

Chapter 5 covers the issues involved with customers and why marketing is necessary to not on create new customers, but to hold onto your existing base. Chapter 6 looks at the different kinds of value a legal practice has and what that implies about income. In a related area, Chapter 7 looks at the kinds of capital your legal practice has and how you can manage each. Chapter 8 explores the issues of competition in the modern legal practice and the evaporation of the old gentleman's agreements among firms. Ethics and the failure of preserving traditional ethics in some modern corporate law firms is reported in chapter 9. The book concludes with a plea for the preservation of the partnership ethos in chapter 10.

While the book has a definite focus on Europe, there is value for American firms and their managers if they deal in the practice of supporting global clients. You will know more about how your European competitors think and work, if nothing else.
