An article written by Brooks Pierce partner Ed Winslow has been chosen for the “Best of Law Practice Today” compilation for 2020, which will be published in July. The compilation will feature 15 articles published in the Law Practice Today webzine from August 2019 through April 2020.
Winslow’s article, titled “Not Fade Away: Can Old Lawyers Age Successfully?” discusses how the changing legal industry affects the way senior lawyers need to approach work-life balance and their upcoming retirement. In the article, Winslow describes a time when lawyers were able to integrate their legal careers into their lifestyles and make adjustments as they aged and their life circumstances changed. Now, he says, that may be changed for lawyers who are part of larger firms or organizations.
The article was originally published in the January issue of Law Practice Today, a web-based magazine published by the American Bar Association. Law Practice Today contains articles by lawyers across the country focused on the mechanics and operational issues involved in practicing law and managing a law firm.
Winslow, former managing partner of Brooks Pierce, has over 40 years of experience counseling and representing individuals and businesses on issues involving tax, corporate transactions, and banking law. He is also a frequent speaker and writer on topics related to law practice management and strategic leadership. He is the current chairman of the board of trustees for the North Carolina State Bar Plan for Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts and was the first North Carolina attorney appointed to the American Bar Association’s Commission on the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts. He is also the chairman of the board of trustees for Guilford College and a past member of the board of governors of the North Carolina Bar Association.
