Law firms can increase profitability by improving inter-generational communication.

Thriving in a Multi-Generational Law Firm: How to Increase Communication and Collaboration Among Lawyers by legal industry consultants Pamela DeNeuve and John Grimley – outlines how inter-generational communication challenges are placing law firm profitability at risk – and how this situation can be improved through effective communication strategies.

As the authors detail, four generations of legal professionals are now working together – each with distinct preferences, values and traits, creating new and unique challenges to communication.

This generational shift presents an opportunity for lawyers and legal professionals to undertake custom initiatives to tackle these challenges. Law firms can adopt new styles of communication, help foster alternative career tracks and expand programs aimed at mentoring. Where firms do not adapt, generational friction, staff turnover (particularly among women and minorities), and client loss, are likely to continue.
