Are you a jerk partner? If so, we’re betting there’s a supervising attorney in your past whom you’re channeling. In today’s episode, we're focused on the cycle of dysfunction in which terrible-boss behavior is passed down from generation to generation inside law firms. To talk about the phenomenon are Kathleen Pearson, chief human resources officer at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, and Patrick Krill, founder of Krill Strategies, a consultancy that works with law firms on mental health and substance abuse issues.
