Session summary:

"The Fault in Our Stars? Case Studies in Lateral Integration Assessments"

Growth by any means necessary has been an industry-wide mantra since long before the Great Recession. Indeed, in a profession forged upon individual reputations and brand prestige, a culture of stars, replete with stratospheric salaries and healthy egos, has yielded a vicious cycle of hype and hope for many within the AmLaw 200. This roundtable invites participants to share practical opinions on what a successful lateral integration approach truly looks like in today’s climate. Our facilitators will lead a conversation around what criteria truly separates successful firms from their peers?
