Partner development report

Posted: 22nd November 2016

Henry Marsden, partner at Møller PSF Group, together with Richard Album and David Ball on behalf of the Legal Education & Training Group (LETG) have recently carried out and analysed their latest research into partner development within law firms. Their findings are based on an online survey that ran from August to November 2015. Responses were received from 44 firms, with 16 of these reflecting the top 30 ranked firms. The survey has been run every two years since 2009 to track changes over time. No individual firm is identifiable from the research report.
