partner business case

Group of business people assembling jigsaw puzzle and represent team support and help concept Last week I was alerted by a friend that ‘How to make partner and still have a life‘ had been reviewed in the Law Society Gazette. Very kindly, my friend sent me her hard copy of the magazine in the post. It has been a nail biting few days waiting for both the postie and until the book review was posted on line. On Friday, I finally read what everyone else had been telling me about… So, what did an independent reviewer, Paul Rogerson, Editor-in-chief of the Law Society Gazette,  think about the book? It’s white knuckles time… Luckily, he loved it, here are the highlights of the review: ”If you’re ambitious, or think you are, this could be 30 quid very well spent.” ”impressively practical and exhaustive.” ”This is a ‘how to’ guide – peppered with tips, action points and case studies which would-be partners in the legal profession can learn from.” Interestingly, Paul made the connection with a known laissez-faire attitude from junior lawyers to their career. (maybe these are the same lawyers who on my roll on friday blog repeatedly tell me that I am peddling common sense??) The young practising solicitors who attended the Gazette’s roundtable for junior lawyers recently professed to be unconcerned about their prospects of making partner.
