Thanks to rising levels of lateral movement, recruiting has, justifiably, become one of the most talked about topics in the law firm world right now.

But finding and landing a stellar candidate is only a first step. Ensuring that the lateral succeeds at your firm is what drives long-term results. Great NFL franchises are built around consistently strong rosters. It’s the same for law firms: Leveraging the competence and capabilities a lateral brings to your team (and vice versa) will enhance the value of the entire franchise for many years to come.
