Is being a law firm partner not quite as you imagined? Let Global BPO take the strain.

Making partner in a law firm is no mean feat –  it takes hard work, determination, skill and courage. The recognition of excellence, status and financial rewards it brings makes partnership a prize worth fighting for and it is rightly regarded as a career pinnacle.


However, many ambitious lawyers find that once they gain access to the coveted “partners’ club”, all is not how they imagined it.


Not what you imagined?


With partnership comes all sorts of new responsibilities and obligations which can be a huge distraction from the business of practising law and interaction with clients – the very reason most lawyers entered the profession in the first place.


It’s no exaggeration to say that the job of being a partner can often be unrecognisable as a job in the legal profession!


People management issues are a distraction


The burdens of administration that you pick up as a partner take huge amounts of time and remove you from the day-to-day practise of law. It is not only dealing with regulation and compliance duties but often just managing staff (who you are now responsible for) which takes up a considerable amount of time.


Overseeing recruitment and onboarding and managing day-to-day personnel issues and requirements for legal and non-legal staff can cause many a headache for partners, who also have a myriad of other responsibilities such as business development, PR and keeping existing clients happy!


Particularly for managing partners, navigating through internal politics and dealing with strong personalities and divergent views within a law firm can be wearing.
