Best Practices for Hiring & Integrating Lateral Partners

Friday, August 23, 2013, 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM

Statistics tell us that most lateral partners hired into new law firms do not succeed. The laterals often do not fulfill expectations on their book of business, and/or fail to develop synergies with the firm's other business. The resulting disruption poses huge costs and risks for the firm. Join this session to see how to increase the likelihood of success, while decreasing the associated risks.


  • Examine how to effectively integrate laterals into your firm's culture after they arrive and over time
  • Determine best practices before making an offer, interviewing, questionnaires and other due diligence processes
  • Evaluate and establish best practices for monitoring their performance

Audience: Attendees should have a working knowledge of the issues involved in hiring and integrating laterals.
