Law Firm Leaders Survey – Responses due by Oct. 18

The Daily Business Review is seeking contributions to the American Lawyer's annual Law Firm Leaders Survey. In previous years, the DBR published the results under the title Managing Partners Survey. Managing partners, firm administrators and other firm heads are asked to assess the year ahead. The survey consists of 58 questions and should take about 20 minutes to complete. The survey is anonymous. The editors of the Daily Business Review and The American Lawyer magazine will see only the aggregate data. The results are scheduled to be published in December by the DBR and The American Lawyer. Responses are due by Oct. 18. Here is the survey link.
