I was hired by a medium-sized law firm to be the second in charge of the litigation team behind the partner to allow him to work ON the business, rather than IN the business. For four years, I was the go-to person for the team, running team meetings, approving leave and work-from-home arrangements, answering all the questions, approving bills, and consulting on team financial reports.
As well as being the team leader, I also maintained my own work, consistently being one of the top billers on the team.
For a couple of years before the global health crisis, we had a good, strong team with a high level of satisfaction and collegiality, and relatively little turnover. That changed post-crisis, but it really changed when I was asked to interview a possible new candidate.
