“The beauty of the ABCDE model and toolkit is that it is simple but not simplistic, it’s user-friendly and works in practice.”
Joanne Gubbay, Former Head of Learning and Development, Slaughter and May

Lead your team of lawyers to new heights with this tried-and-tested toolkit, based on 25 years’ practical experience of getting the best out of lawyers.

Leading Lawyers distils 25 years of experience at helping people do just that into one easy-to-read practical toolkit. Based on the successful ABCDE methodology, this guide will help you identify your natural leadership style, identify the various needs and personalities in your team of lawyers, and align everything to become a truly impactful and supportive leader.

Packed with real-life inspiring examples, ready-made tools and memorable tips, Leading Lawyers will help you reflect on your own communication preferences, and use what you learn to get different stakeholders and different personalities on board.

From scoping the project with a client to reviewing progress and success, from on-boarding a new team member to tackling a stubborn problem, there are examples each step of the way and opportunities to plan how to use the approach in practice, so you can become an even more effective team leader.

This book delivers what it says it will do on the cover. I was looking for fresh ideas on managing professional people in the hybrid environment and this book ticks all the boxes. The tools are actually very useable and the writing style is conversational and non-technical. There is a refreshing absence of jargon or ‘stating the obvious’ which makes it easy to read – and to extract the elements that work. That’s what I did, in any case. Highly recommend.


Came across this book and a great insight to how lawyers think and work and lead their teams. The ABCDE model and toolkit appears user friendly.


This book is a super easy to read and extremely useful with great practical insights.
