This Month’s Cover Story
Keeping In Touch

Years ago, when an attorney left —
particularly to work at a competitor —
law firms didn’t always leap at the chance to keep in
touch. Today, however, at many firms, the attitude toward
employee exits is decidedly more agreeable —
friendly, even. In this month’s CM
Feature Erin Brereton shows you how keeping
in touch with former employees can be a great
way to grow business.
