Pros recruited to handle business of law firms

January 14, 2008 Carolyn Summers, an Ivy Leaguer with a master's in business administration, was surprised when a headhunter contacted her about a job at a law office. Even after interviewing at the firm, where the proposed job was explained to her as similar to that of a chief operating officer, or COO, Summers was skeptical. Now she is practice-group manager for the corporate and securities practice group of DLA Piper nationwide, and is a convert to the contributions that an MBA can make to law firms.
