Lawyers Weekly deputy editor Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Belinda Hegarty from Commonwealth Bank of Australia, platinum partner of the Partner of the Year Awards, to interview Clayton Utz partner Samy Mansour about his winning of this category, what the past year has taught him and reinforced about good leadership, the critical importance of pastoral care within one’s team, and the need for partners to be adaptable to changing circumstances and staff needs.

The trio also discuss the findings of CBA’s Legal Market Pulse report, and – leading on from those findings – how partners can ensure their collaborative approaches and leadership styles are in keeping with the needs of the emerging generation of practitioners and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead for newer partners in BigLaw practices.
