Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Daljit Doogal discusses his new role as firm chairman and CEO in the Crain's Detroit Business article, "Q&A: New Foley & Lardner CEO takes helm amid fever-pitched fight for talent."
Doogal says he is "focused on making culture top of mind as [the firm] seeks to not only bolster its ranks but also retain attorneys." He acknowledged the current competitive market for talent and said, "you really have to provide a culture and a reason for people to stay."
Doogal also explained Foley's strategic plan, noting that there are four areas of focus -- client service, talent, innovation, and investment in key sectors. The energy, health care and life sciences, manufacturing, and innovative technology sectors are all rapidly changing and he wants to "bring our firm to that change" and "be more partners to our clients than just legal providers."
