DEVELOPING AND TAKING CARE OF STAR TALENT

Wellbeing and health are important topics gaining more attention in the legal industry. In our latest Acritas Stars survey, live now, we explore the prevalence of stress risk factors, how they impact on wellbeing and what strategies are most effective at minimizing stress and maximizing wellbeing among our star lawyer community.

All our client nominated Acritas Star lawyers should have received an invite to take part - which we would strongly encourage you to do so.

The insights we gain from our Star Lawyer community are incredibly important to understand more about the qualities clients value and how law firms can attract, develop and retain high performing individuals. Our latest Acritas Star Interview puts a spotlight on Danielle Moss, a Senior Associate from Proskauer Rose LLP, about the skills she feels make her stand out to clients and how law firms can support associates to maximize their potential.


COLLABORATIVE FIRMS ATTRACT AND RETAIN TALENT AND CLIENTS BETTER

In the first post of her blog series, Jen Dezso, Acritas US Vice President explains how clients are more likely to entrust a larger share of their work with more collaborative firms. Collaboration is one of the top five drivers of partner engagement; meaning: a collaborative environment at your firm is one of the best ways to ensure you are attracting and retaining the absolute best talent as well as clients.


OLD MIGHT NOT BE BORING – THE THIRD THOUGHT LEADERSHIP TENSION

Sometimes the best ideas are the ones you have already had! In part three of his blog series, Steve Blundell (Head of Acritas Advisors) explains how you can get the most out of your thought leadership campaigns, by monitoring and re-visiting old content.


LEGAL TECHNOLOGY FOR LAWYERS: INTRODUCING ACRITAS ACADEMY

Our research has highlighted innovation and ‘use of legal technologies’ as a key area in which clients feel law firms can make improvements in the service they offer. It’s also a key area where Star Lawyers want to develop their skills.

In response, we have collaborated with Catherine Bamford, an experienced Legal Engineer, to give an overview of how best to use the legal technology tools and solutions available in the market currently.

This 20-minute video tutorial includes real-life use cases of legal technologies and client testimonials to show how they can truly benefit legal teams.


CROSS-BORDER SUPPORT AND EXPERTISE DRIVING LAW FIRM FAVORABILITY IN ASIA PACIFIC MARKETS

Our sixth annual Acritas Asia Pacific Law firm Brand Index reveals legal departments are spending more of their budget on international work in the Asia Pacific region which has driven favorability for the top law firms.

While Baker McKenzie holds number one position for the third consecutive year, four firms have shifted position in the top 10 this year reflecting the dynamic and competitive nature of the market – and the increased interest among global legal departments for work in the region.

Hear from Acritas' David Johnson, Account Director, reveal the 10 strongest brands in the region and the importance of cross-border support and expertise in driving brand results for these firms.
