LONDON - June 16, 2021 - PRLog -- Bill Knight OBE worked for Simmons & Simmons for 35 years – from articled clerk to senior partner. He is the author of The Acquisition of Private Companies and Business Assets, which ran to seven editions. Since leaving the firm in 2001, Bill has been president of the City of London Law Society, deputy chairman of Lloyd's of London, chair of the Financial Reporting Review Panel and a gambling commissioner. He is now a professional photographer.

"If you want to understand how to run a people business, the best starting point is the people who already perform that role. Bill Knight has produced an insightful and engaging snapshot of people who manage people. This book is a wise investment both for leaders and the people they lead."

- Guy Beringer CBE, Chair of the Legal Education Foundation and former Senior Partner, Allen & Overy

We do not hear enough about running law firms from those who do the job. Here they talk frankly, free from jargon and management-speak, about their careers and what their role is really like. The interviews will cover everything from their first jobs to becoming a partner and reveal their key pieces of advice for all current and aspiring senior partners.

Most lawyers have to manage others at some point in their careers and anyone with management responsibilities in a law firm of any size will gain something from the hard-won experience of these leaders.

The report features interviews with, among others, Edward Braham (Freshfields, Bruckhaus Deringer), Kathleen Russ (Travers Smith), James Palmer (Herbert Smith Freehills), Rafael Fontana (Cuatrecasas), and Olayemi Anyanechi (Sefton Fross), providing readers with a variety of perspectives on running a law firm.

By lawyers, for lawyers, this report from senior members of the profession tells personal stories about their pathways to the law and gives their views on clients, management, the role of lawyers in society and the issues of the day. It will provide lasting and critical insights into the profession at this time of change and disruption.
