We talk a lot on this podcast about marketing and career management. While great lawyers have great technical skills, getting the work you want and advancing your career, requires a different set of skills. The same is true for lawyers who move from being an individual contributor to taking on leadership roles in their firm or in their corporate law department.
In this episode, I speak with an expert on how to make a successful transition into leadership. We discuss the things you should be thinking about if you have already made that move. Whether you are chairing a department for the first time, new to the role of managing partner at your firm, or promoted to general counsel, this is a great conversation for you.
