Take it away, readers!

The most effective way to get lawyers to collaborate is:

  • With direct incentives through compensation, e.g., multiple credits for importing/exporting business across offices and/or practices. (34%, 44 Votes)
  • Through training, professional development, coaching, and working through case studies together. (22%, 28 Votes)
  • Nothing is effective; the combination of lawyers’ desire for autonomy with their skepticism and lack of trust—even of colleagues—dooms any effort from the start. (20%, 25 Votes)
  • By penalizing (through compensation) hoarders and members of siloed practices. (9%, 11 Votes)
  • Letting the superior financial results generated by clients with multiple “touch points” in the firm speak for themselves. (9%, 11 Votes)
  • Through exhortation and example. (7%, 9 Votes)
