"While most firms continue to shrink or stand still, a few have found the key to growth"

The April 15th edition of North Carolina's Lawyers Weekly featured the publication's annual look at the state's "Top 25 law firm."
The piece, subtitled "While most firms continue to shrink or stand still, a few have found the key to growth" included insight about Nexsen Pruet's growth from the firm's Board Chairman John Sowards.
A few excerpts:
Sowards said growth should be well planned and orderly. Nexsen Pruet’s three years of growth came on the heels of expanding the firm’s focus and hiring outside attorneys, such as former federal prosecutors and General Assembly members who came with a variety of experience. By focusing its growth in a number of diverse practice areas, most notably franchising, Nexsen grew in size and expanded its offering to clients....
Firms that have held steady or grown over the last several years have not accomplished this by coincidence, Sowards noted:
“Growth is not happenstance. It’s the result of rigorous recruiting and exhaustive planning from our management and business development teams. The adage of there being no shortcuts to success certainly holds true here.”
