Firm Culture

Has the Legal Profession ‘Souled’ Out?

Back in the day, the practice of law was considered to be a profession first, and a business second.  Over the years, there was a great deal of talk about how lawyers had to recognize that the practice of law was also a business, and to become more business-like in their approach.  I expect that this had a lot to do with some combination of law firms becoming less profitable and law partners, like many in the corporate sector, becoming greedier.
