The seven elements of successful country law firms

Hart, Caroline (2018) The seven elements of successful country law firms. Federation Press, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. ISBN 978-176002-166-5


How and why do some country law firms not only survive but prosper while others flounder and fail? Caroline Hart provides insights for creating a successful country law firm through her interviews with over 40 practice owners who generously share their experiences - good and bad. This book is comprised of chapters covering critical areas such as governance, leadership, technology, human resources and succession planning.

'I commend Dr Hart for undertaking this important work. The result is sound practical advice about the challenges and opportunities of country practice. More than that, this work will also usefully inform the many city legal practitioners who are searching for more cost effective, flexible and personally satisfying forms of practice.' The Honourable Chief Justice Chris Kourakis Supreme Court of South Australia.
