Posted by & filed under Careers, New Lawyers, Recession.

The three types of collaboration

Posted by & filed under Clients, Collaboration.

There was a lot to take away from yet another excellent ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago last week. One thing I didn’t take away, though, was my laptop. I managed to lose it the night before leaving and spent a fruitless morning searching all over the Hilton Chicago hoping to find it. Happily for me (and… Read more »
