Why this firm has a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ model

As former Managing Partner of the Year Danny King puts it, she doesn’t expect others to prop her up without her propping them up in return. As such, her firm has successfully implemented a model that is more consultative, collaborative, and individual-driven rather than top-down.

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back Danny King Legal founder Danny King (whose firm recently won Workplace Relations and Employment Team of the Year at the Australian Law Awards) to discuss the importance of authenticity with staff and moving away from traditional workplace structures, leveraging one’s staff in different ways, and allowing greater freedom for staff members to identify how they want to produce work for the business.

Ms King reflects on how staff have responded to her business model since its introduction, the evolutions that have been made and why, the opportunities in implementing a “create-your-own-adventure” model for law firms, how other business owners in law have responded to her model, whether she is optimistic that the rest of the profession can move towards such non-traditional structures, and why they will benefit from doing so.
