I was very encouraged by a Bloomberg article regarding Katten Muchin Rosenman. The piece describes the strategic priorities of Roger Furey, the chair of the firm. The three top priorities are:
- Getting the word out regarding the firm’s reputation. Reportedly, the firm has an excellent reputation with existing clients and the goal is to make the broader market more aware of this.
- Determine what the firm’s clients view as their needs. As is the case with all firms (or for that matter, any service related business), understanding the needs of clients — learning directly from them about what they are thinking and what they need — will allow the firm to better serve them (and when done properly, almost always result in organic growth).
- Attorney development. The firm intends to better use its more senior lawyers to enhance the capabilities of its more junior lawyers.
