Managing Partner

Colligan Law LLP

Years in current role: 8

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I enjoy building a team of high-functioning business attorneys who allow us to compete with local, regional, national and international law firms for business clients.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

COVID has reduced the amount of training time the young lawyers are getting from the more experienced attorneys since remote working negatively affects mentoring.

What do you see as the biggest changes in the legal industry in the next 3-5 years?

Computerized legal service delivery systems are being oversold in the near term but will no doubt be part of the landscape at some future point in time.

What advice would you give law students who are graduating this year?

Challenge yourself to find the hardest areas of law to practice in; they will be the most enduring jobs.

What are you most looking forward to doing as COVID restrictions ease?

Networking again.
