Galanter, Marc, Palay, Thomas

SUMMARY

Tournament of Lawyerstraces in detail the rise of one hundred of the nation's top firms in order to diagnose the health of the business of American law. Galanter and Palay demonstrate that much of the large firm's organizational success stems from its ability to blend the talents of experienced partners with those of energetic junior lawyers driven by a powerful incentivethe race to win "the promotion-to-partner tournament." This calmly reasoned study reveals, however, that the very causes of the spiraling growth of the large law firm may lead to its undoing. "Galanter and Palay pose questions and offer some answers which are certain to change the way big firm practice is regarded. To describe their work as challenging is something of an understatement: they at times delight, stimulate, frustrate and even depress the reader, but they never disappoint. Tournament of Lawyersis essential to the understanding of the business of the big law firms."Jean and Colin Fergus, New York Law JournalGalanter, Marc is the author of 'Tournament of Lawyers The Transformation of the Big Law Firm', published 1993 under ISBN 9780226278780 and ISBN 0226278786.
