What do law firms stand to gain from encouraging collaboration? Why do attorneys often resist this change? And how can teams develop the right strategy to communicate across practice areas and with clients?

This week’s free featured resource in the LawSites Resources center is a downloadable guide to attorney collaboration. Among the topics it covers:

  • Three key initiatives for successful cross-practice collaboration.
  • Why shifting focus away from billable hours can improve client relationships and increase revenue.
  • Seven communication strategies to strengthen the lawyer-client relationship.
  • How your firm can leverage technology for a collaborative (and competitive) advantage.

It also covers the metrics and tools a firm needs to measure success.
