‘Creating a partnership I can be proud of’

11 November 2021 By Robyn Tongol

Paul McCann was the head of litigation and Sydney office lead partner of a top-tier firm who saw a “noticeable decline in the happiness factor” for lawyers across the board. He decided to start a new firm, through which he felt he could better lead the next generation in meaningful, substantive ways.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Cornwalls principal Paul McCann to discuss the reasons he left BigLaw behind, the type of leadership he wants to see in the legal profession and the values he tried to imbibe within his staff.
