Episode 74: Lawyer Leadership Within Virtual Law Firms With Guest Elise Buie

by Heather Moulder | Life & Law Podcast

Interested in joining (or one day starting) a virtual firm? What does it take from a lawyer leadership perspective? And is there a difference between how to lead within a virtual law firm vs. a traditional law firm?

Join me and guest Elise Buie for a conversation that covers all of the above.

Elise opened her own virtual law firm before virtual became a thing (pre-pandemic). And quickly learned that she needed to become a more effective leader to make it work.

Regardless of your interest in virtual law firms, I encourage you to listen to today’s conversation. Because Elise shares so many valuable leadership insights that I KNOW you’ll benefit from.

Here Is What’s Covered In Today’s Episode:

  • The keys to making a virtual law firm work (that’s also applicable to hybrid firms and those with flexible structures).
  • Why virtual won’t work for everyone (and how to figure out who it will work for vs. who it won’t work for).
  • The difference between leading and managing (because they’re not the same thing).
  • What being a good leader means, and how to cultivate the right mindset for effective lawyer leadership.
