Lead with purpose
A few thoughts on partnership
At Corrs, we have a vision about building a world class law firm committed to driving Australia’s competitiveness and its economic engagement with Asia. It’s a big vision that requires us to fearlessly bridge the gap between legal practice and business challenges. It’s a vision that needs the right leaders. People with the courage and talent to lead change.
That’s why being a partner at Corrs is about more than being a great lawyer. It’s about being a great leader. A visionary. A trusted adviser. An entrepreneur. A manager. And a mentor. So yes, being a partner at Corrs is probably more challenging than ever before. It’s definitely more rewarding. And, at times, absolutely exhilarating.
Unlike many law firms, Corrs is growing rapidly. It’s an exciting place to be. We’re clear about where we are headed and we are working together to get there. For our partners, like all our people, this means opportunity – to be pioneering.
We’re doing things differently and that’s exciting. We are working in a way that makes more sense for our clients. And it’s great for them to acknowledge it. We’re focussing on the markets and sectors that matter most and having real impact. And we are embracing change. We're not shrinking from the challenges facing Australian law firms in a post GFC world with increased competition from international players. We understand our role in the broader Asia Pacific region and recognise the opportunity for us, our clients and our people. We’re confident in our position and our future.
And we’re doing all this together. As partners.
