Among the subjects not covered in law school is the possibility that your firm may be the subject of a Harvard Business School case study.On the one hand, only a few firms of any kind pique the interest of HBS, which per se confers a certain status upon the chosen few. On the other, selected firms are expected to bare their souls and expose their accounting departments to Harvard’s professors.John Soroko is the chairman of Philadelphia-based Duane Morris, the 700-attorney firm that has twice been selected for such studies.“In 2006, Duane Morris was the subject of a Harvard study [Duane Morris: Balancing Growth and Culture at a Law Firm] and I was vice chair of the firm, so I was on the scene and participated with professor Boris Groysberg in its development,” Soroko says. “So in 2012 it occurred to me that with the tumult in the legal industry from 2008 forward,” it might be a good idea for Groysberg to revisit the firm and “chart our progress in … [Read more...] about What does it take for a firm to become a Harvard Business School case study?

The system encourages collaboration rather than … [Read more...] about BigLaw firm reveals nuts and bolts of its pay system in Harvard case study on collaboration
