Desperately Seeking SeniorsSeptember 1, 2007
James A. Matthews, III was recently quoted in "Desperately Seeking Seniors." The article by Elizabeth Goldberg appeared in the September 1, 2007, edition of The American Lawyer.
Matthews added his thoughts to a report on the growing trend to recruit senior talent. Many firms are snapping up older attorneys — and the networks of contacts they keep — to help grow offices and contact lists. The trend has split the legal industry – with many firms maintaining mandatory retirement, and other seeking senior talent. Matthews voiced the view of firms on the mandatory retirement side.
