Talent management

Selecting the right people. Training and developing talent.

We specialize in the “people” side of law firm management

The heart of a practice is the scientific assessment, selection and development of talent. We continually scan the professional literature in the fields of psychology, management science, neuroscience, organization development, and related fields. We then integrate these insights with our vast experience and knowledge of the legal profession to provide you with clear, simple and actionable advice rooted in science to help you find, develop and motivate the best talent for your firm or corporate legal department.
