AACoverI was pleased to have been invited to contribute an article to the Jan/Feb 2015 edition of Administrator’s Advantage, the newsletter of the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators. In it, I outline some of the problems typically faced by managing partners in their work with firms’ administrative teams, and the challenges faced by the administrators themselves. The goal of the article was to set out ways in which these two sectors of the law firm can work together more successfully and openly to achieve objectives that are of benefit to the entire firm.

The article appears on page 12 of the pdf version of the publication. I welcome your thoughts regarding the suggestions for collaborative action I have set out, and any others that you have used effectively to achieve firm objectives. You are welcome to contribute your feedback in the comments section below, or to contact me regarding this or any other matter directly via email.
