Managing Partner Succession

The managing partner of a large law firm with 25 offices was stepping down after many years. The firm did not have a succession plan and feared factions would be created over whether the new managing partner came out of the traditional “home office” or from one of the regional offices.  We worked with the nominating committee and performed independent interviews of partners throughout the firm in determining that the location of the new managing partner was more an issue for the firm leadership than the partners at large.
