The article focuses on Australian law firms. Aussie law firms are looking more and more like boot camps than the legal paradise envisioned by many a City associate. The situation kicked off last month when Tom Poulton, managing partner of leading Australian firm Aliens Arthur Robinson, shocked the country in an interview with business magazine BRW. The tough talk has other Aussie managing partners scrambling to come up with all new and novel ways of showing commitment to clients. Michael Bradley, managing partner of Gadens, has heeded Poulton's call to arms and indicated to staff that he will go several radical steps further.
