Turnover Low at Old-Fashioned Firm

An old-fashioned management approach appears to be working for Boston-based Goulston & Storrs.

American Lawyer reports that the firm, a new member of its top 200 list, makes major decisions by a vote of the entire partnership after long, intense meetings. Turnover is unusually low.

The legal newspaper describes the firm’s business model as “characterized by team-oriented client service; low associate-to-partner leverage; a base of real estate clients augmented by growing middle-market private equity, corporate and litigation practices; and valuable lateral hires drawn to the firm for its traditional values.”
