In this episode, Alay and Ken discuss:
- Making the decision to grow and hire.
- Strategic hiring and strategic opportunities.
- Reasons lawyers tend to leave their firms.
- Building a great firm.
- One avenue to growth could be merging with like-minded attorneys to whom you all refer business.
- Having complementary practice areas under the same roof can help better provide services to your clients.
- When merging and growing your law firm, the culture, and values of those you bring into the firm need to be aligned, and everyone should be working toward the same, ultimate, goal.
- Bringing in new partners can help to relieve stress in your firm as you are looking to better serve your current clients and new possible clients.
- “We’re much more proactive about the hiring – we are looking for strategic opportunities to expand.” — Ken Falcon
- “Take the risk, seize the bull by the horns, and give it a shot. Bet on yourself, first and foremost, and in general, you’ll land on your feet.” — Ken Falcon
