KHF founding member Jacklyn Fetbroyt was selected to participate in a Women in the Profession Roundtable discussion that took place at the American Lawyer Media offices in Philadelphia. The conversation will be published in an upcoming Woman in the Profession supplement in The Legal Intelligencer. Among the issues discussed were recruitment and retention of female lawyers, gender equality issues, work-life balance and challenges facing women at law firms today. The roundtable was moderated by Jami McKeon, Chair of Morgan Lewis.
“Thinking about making a lateral move to a small, boutique law firm? Recruiting successful laterals is critical to any firm’s success, regardless of size, and firms consider many factors in making a lateral hire. But for a small, boutique firm, a lateral hire will have an immediate impact. While big law firms can hire in large numbers and count on the laws of attrition to weed out the good from the bad hires, it is critical that small, boutique firms make the right calls—for the sake of both the law firm and the lateral,” writes Edward Kang in an article on lateral hiring as part of The Legal Intelligencer’s Top Laterals/New Partners supplement.
In the feature, Edward addresses some of the considerations to keep in mind when comparing a small, boutique law firm to a big firm; the importance of understanding the business of law; and the need for an appropriate business plan.
