Professional Practices Leaders
Professional practices are contending with an increasingly competitive marketplace for both talent and clients. Leaders must also look at the role for technology and how to create efficiency and productivity. In our Professional Practice Leaders section, we talk to your peers about how they have handled these and other challenges and the steps they're taking to build the practices of the future.

Hugh Maule was no stranger to the inner workings of business when he took on managerial responsibilities at Lawrence Graham in 2006, just seven years after he’d been made partner. He’d already built considerable specialism in advising Main Market and AIM companies on strategy, M&A activity and fund raising.
Peter Rolph is an owner, Managing Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution at leading Bournemouth-based solicitors Steele Raymond. The firm’s success has been built on a collegiate approach, with everyone working for the good of the firm and its clients, rather than for individual partners.
While many lawyers love the cut and thrust of a good dispute, Peter Taylor, managing partner at Paris Smith, realised early on that most of his clients would rather prevent problems before they happen. Prevention is usually more effective than a cure and a whole lot cheaper.
