We are now well into the dog days of August. The usually bustling New York Supreme Court building down on Centre Street has taken on a peaceful air (more typical of a sleepy rural courthouse) and for the next few weeks there will hardly be a single judge left sitting on the bench. And we hope that means most of our clients have temporarily traded in their pinstripe suits for tennis whites, golf slacks or other suitable vacation-wear.
But wherever you happen to be spending your summer holiday this year, in addition to hoping that it’s warm and sunny, we wanted to take a moment to remind you that the downtime of a few weeks away from the office presents a great opportunity to take stock of how your law firm is doing. With distance from the daily grind, you now actually have a chance to do some thinking about what can steps can be taken in order to really improve your practice, so you don’t feel like you’re always playing catch-up or working from behind the eight ball.
