“The 4 Traits Law Firm Leaders Value Most In A Partner”

Integrity, good communication skills, sound judgment and a collaborative spirit.

Those are the four qualities law firm leaders referenced most when asked, as part of an ongoing Law360 interview series, “What one trait is most important for a law firm partner?”

…One big way partners can communicate better is by becoming good listeners, said Thompson & Knight managing partner Mark Sloan.

“I think too many times people are too focused on getting their own message out that they don’t stop to listen. And part of having good communication skills is you have to listen, and try to respond to what the person is saying to you,” Sloan said.
