NY Remains Top Market For Partner, Counsel Promotions

While remote work has leveled the playing field for many up-and-coming young attorneys based outside major hubs, New York remains a hotspot for BigLaw partner and counsel promotions, largely driven by a recent boom in corporate work.  Paul Pearlman notes that a wave of newly minted New York partners is symptomatic of strong economic growth in the practice areas that are most prominent in the Big Apple, like finance, mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets transactions.  In reality, most firms, particularly firms in New York, have thrived during the pandemic, and for a lot of firms, one of the main keys to their success is the strength of their New York office.

Law Firm Merger Predictions For 2021

There has been healthy chatter about the 2021 law firm merger market since last spring, when law firm leaders shuddered at the thought of what damage the COVID-19 crisis might inflict on BigLaw finances. Peter Zeughauser analyzes the BigLaw merger market in 2021 and senses that it seems poised for a return to normal. Indeed, by the end of January, it may feel like a snapback. By the end of 2021, last year's dip in the law firm merger market will be an anomaly, for a number of reasons.

Merger Mania and the Marketing Mandate: Strategies - The Journal of Legal Marketing, February 2020

Mergers are everywhere. While mega-mergers grab headlines, many recent law firm combinations have been between 5- to 25-lawyer firms. And with more than 100 combinations taking place annually, they are occurring more frequently than marketers assume.  Mary K Young discusses reasons for the increase in merger activity and the need to maintain a focus on clients as a priority for firms during any merger process.

Warning Signs: How Big Law's Greatest Failures Unfolded

Three decades of data reveal common threads from Finley Kumble to LeClairRyan. What can be learned from the history of law firm failures?  Mary K Young observes that external factors, including a recession, can accelerate a firm’s demise, but typically are not at the root of its problems. Young says firm leaders have to stay in touch with their clients and stakeholders, never losing track of what those people want. They need a vision for where the firm will go next.

When Dentons recently announced its bold plan to build “the first national law firm” in the U.S., Greenberg Traurig’s leaders scoffed, pointing out that their firm had already done that. If by “national law firm” Dentons meant achieving geographic scale—which is what it suggested when it noted that none of the nation’s top 10 full-service law firms has offices in all 20 of the largest U.S. markets—then it had a point. Mary K Young discusses the options for the structure of a growing firm—traditional growth versus a verein—and the central question of which model provides for smoother collaboration between disparate geographies.
