I would advise the management to not accept so many cases, so that attorneys can devote more attention to clients and deliver quality work.Pros : The cases that the firm handles are fairly complex in nature. Even with cases being somewhat difficult, everyone was able to come together and find solutions to various problems that were encountered. We were able to have equal input into cases and solving various problems.
