Steering Through Rough Waters
December 2014 — American Lawyer
Crowell & Moring chairman and Washington, D.C.-based partner, Kent A. Gardiner, shares his thoughts about American Lawyer’s 12th annual "Law Firm Leaders Survey." The results from the survey show that law firm leaders expressed optimism as they were constantly tweaking their practices, technology platforms, and staffing mixes to better position themselves in an ever more competitive environment. When Gardiner was asked about where the growth will be in the legal industry, he responded, "…we are seeing more deal flow," as "this increase in demand is taking place amid pricing challenges and challenges to be more innovative in the delivery of legal services."
