To end the week, we’ll visit the Kowalski & Associates Blog.  It’s published by Jerome Kowalski, a consultant and adviser to law firms on strategic planning and growth, trends in the profession, partner compensation, associate hiring, training and retention, and other practice management issues.  As you might expect, most of his recent posts focus on those topics – protecting a law firm’s crown jewels, law firm liquidations, avoiding law firm implosions, and much more.
