Managing partners and members of executive committees in the most successful law firms strongly support the concept of having Practice Group Leaders (PGLs) assume a major role in their firms’ efforts. These individuals: 1) ensure partner coordination, control and accountability over fields of law, areas of practice and client matters to provide high-quality legal services to clients in a timely manner at fees that are fair to the clients and their firms; 2) increase the productivity levels of all timekeepers within their Practice groups; 3) increase the economic contribution of their practice groups to the firm to enhance revenue and profitability; and 4) assume primary responsibility for communications to and from members of their practices about firm economics, priorities and business issues, as well as practice growth and client development initiatives.
