This time last year (which, of course, bears striking resemblance to only yesterday), we were celebrating our first-ever cover shoot that successfully assembled a group of law firm operational leaders in one place at one time.
They span not just departments, but generations. From a flexible lawyer, to a firm taking early advantage of legal apprentices, and significant bridge builders between business services and fee earning communities, these are the people building the firm

Law firms are increasingly composed of many communities under one roof. Creating the essential cohesive culture
calls for care and attention to everyone, says DLA Piper’s Carol Ashton
