Delegating with Confidence is the title of my column this month in Lawyers USA. Some lawyers are not as effective as they could be delegating important work to others. This is often because "[a]ny assignment delegated to staff is still the responsibility of the lawyer and the failure of a staff person to properly accomplish a task will be no excuse to a client or disciplinary authority, which might hold a lawyer accountable for poor performance." Hopefully the tips in the article will help you delegate important assignments more effectively.
