Law firms face a unique set of challenges in contrast to traditional enterprises with regard to sustainability due their organizational structure and personality driven management processes. With so many different competing priorities and individual interests within an organization it can be a challenge to reach any agreement or consensus that satisfies all stakeholders. This is especially so if it involves a material investment of time or capital that has no immediate and apparent positive impact on the bottom line.
Often longstanding members of firm management have become accustomed to operating in a seemingly efficient, familiar and comfortable manner, which adequately fulfills all their perceived needs. Hence any attempt to affect substantial change may be met with stiff resistance, particularly if it requires the modification of deeply ingrained habits and behavior.
Furthermore law firms frequently operate in silos where each office location or practice group operates as an individual entity with its own specific procedures and policies, which inhibits the ability to implement uniform and coordinated programs that span the enterprise.
Consequently, any endeavor to introduce sustainability driven change into a law firm must be approached using a sensitive and well-informed strategy, backed by solid evidence of the benefits and a well structured plan of execution.
