Retirement and lawyers - how to make a dignified exit
“A professional firm can handle a partner’s retirement very badly or very smoothly. Most partner exits sit somewhere in between. Firms can usually achieve the latter by sticking to a simple, six-word motto: Be prepared. Be right. Be nice.”
MTG Partner and Head of Professional Practices Corinne Staves has been quoted in The Times on how professional firms can help partners 'retire gracefully'. The article follows the publication of 'Partner Retirement in Law Firms: Strategies for Partners, Law Firms and Other Professional Services', edited by Ronnie Fox. The report includes a chapter authored by Corinne on legal issues from the perspective of the firm.
