“Growth is Dead” addresses the future of “BigLaw” (or “SophisticatedLaw”) in the wake of the great financial reset of 2008 and its continuing repercussions including: (a) relentless pricing pressures; (b) excess capacity; (c) partner expectations; and (d) the accelerating entry of new “legal service provider” organizations, with all their implications for career paths, the traditional leveraged staffing model of law firms, and much more.

Brad Karp, Chair of the Firm at Paul Weiss, describes it thus: “I read all 12 installments of your series with great interest…twice. This is an extraordinary body of work that reflects enormous insight and ought be required reading by managing partners of law firms and professional services organizations. You do a very effective job of challenging the status quo and your series is a much-needed wake up call for our profession. As always, I plan to share many of your insights with my partners. And I plan to cogitate over many of your proposed initiatives.”

“2012 Year in Review: Must-Read.”
