Authority Magazine
January 4, 2023


MG+M The Law Firm Managing Partner Amaryah K. Bocchino was interviewed by Authority Magazine as part of its series on "The Business Side of Law." 

Throughout the interview, Amaryah shares about her background, career and mentors, and discusses five things needed to lead a successful law firm: 

  1. Surround yourself with a diverse, strong team of people, many of whom are smarter than yourself.
  2. Communicate often and well.
  3. Be direct and forceful when needed.
  4. Do not be afraid of candid and honest feedback.
  5. Take risks with the understanding that sometimes you will fail.

About the entrepreneurial skills a lawyer needs to run and lead a firm, Amaryah says, "Learn to be a business owner, not just a lawyer. I try to always know what I don’t know. And when I don’t know something, I surround myself with those who do and learn from them. Law firms often fail when they put people in place who are not self-aware and who do not have a business or financial background. My goal—which I learned from my mentor John Manning—is to put strong, smart members on your team and then trust them."
