Study shows lawyers from failed biglaw firms prosper when hired in groups

September 28, 2011 A new study show that attorneys working for large firms that fail are more likely to prosper if they are hired in large groups rather than individually.

The study was conducted by Emory University business professor Christopher Rider, who studied the careers of over 1,400 attorneys who left major law firms that failed in 2008 and 2009. Rider attributes the success of attorneys hired in groups to the fact that these groups have complementary skills.
