Over the past decade, the advantages of group practice have contributed significantly to the increase in numbers and sheer size of general practice and specialty law firms.

Without regard to the actual size of the firm, any level of growth poses inherent problems involving the management of the individual lawyers, facilities and resources. The attorney in the smaller firm may be able to keep informed about the firm’s activities by personal observation and involvement, while his/her counterpart in the larger organization may have to rely more on the official lines of communication. In a manner appropriate to the circumstances, each of the attorneys will be adequately served so long as some formalization of the management processes have been imposed to ensure adequate control over all of the firm’s affairs.
