Mintz Managing Member, Bob Bodian, tells The American Lawyer why maintaining a full practice at the same time as leading a large commercial law firm has its benefits, what differentiates Mintz from other firms, and how to be an effective leader. He says, "I am good at doing things quickly. I don’t overthink things. I prepare, but I don’t get wrapped around the axle when making decisions. I also understand that I am going to make some mistakes and I am never afraid to take action and get things done because of fear of failure. I don’t perseverate over issues".
