Jim Meadows is guest on the Financially Legal podcast to discuss what it takes to get a collections rate of 95%

Culhane Meadows’ co-founder and managing partner Jim Meadows recently spoke with Dan Lear at Gravity Legal for an episode of the Financially Legal podcast to discuss how Culhane Meadows was started, how the firm has grown and how the firm is kept financially strong.

Here is a brief description of Jim’s interview:

How, if at all, do compensation, diversity, and transparency overlap? How can these competing priorities be reconciled? Jim Meadows from Culhane Meadows doesn’t have the perfect answer. But he’s giving it a solid try.

With 75 lawyers and 11 office locations, Culhane Meadows is the largest full-service women-owned law firm in the country. And in each of the last three years, the average female partner at the firm has outearned the average male partner.

The firm was cloud-based from the jump, is growing rapidly and, most important for us financial nerds, boasts a collection rate above 90%.
