All Rise

Benjamin Sachs

Attorneys need high-performing teams that can work well under pressure. But in many organizations, especially large firms, attorneys are often left on their own to figure out how to build their teams, resulting in inconsistent and haphazard management that makes even the best performers feel like cogs in a machine. Many senior leaders view this as inevitable, writing off high attrition as a cost of doing business.

The best lawyers see the world differently. In All Rise, Ben Sachs explains how attorneys can catapult their careers by distinguishing themselves not merely through their legal work but their ability to build incredible legal teams. Leveraging his experience across law and business, Ben Sachs unpacks the science of great teams, identifies best practices across industries, and provides a practical roadmap perfectly tailored to attorneys. No matter your tenure—from junior associates “managing up” to senior partners managing entire practice groups—these tools will help you unlock a more collaborative, more productive, higher-retention team.
