Rich McCarthy is the firm’s Chief Financial Officer, chartered with ensuring clients enjoy a smooth, informed, timely experience when dealing with all financial aspects of the firm.
I’ve had the good fortune over my career to manage the finance function at great professional service firms in both the public and private sectors. I’ve come to love the environment and learned to stay focused on two core constituencies.
Clients want creative, cost efficient legal counsel. My team and I work hand in hand with our attorneys to ensure clients are getting the information they need, both timely and accurately. I also work closely with our clients to develop alternative billing arrangements to suit their needs for predictability and overall cost efficiency.
My team and I are accountable for the finance systems and controls to ensure we deliver high quality service to all of our stakeholders while maintaining appropriate safeguards.
The legal service industry is changing rapidly. My job is to help our firm evolve with it and help shape it. Firms that maximize efficiency of delivery, minimize client costs AND maintain high quality will be the ones that thrive alongside their clients. We are working on this every day.
