Sweet Takes on New Role(s) After Drinker

Former Drinker Biddle & Reath chairman James M. Sweet has joined Boston-based Law Practice Consultants as a principal. 

Sweet will be based in Philadelphia and plans on focusing his work on coaching and mentoring law firm leaders.

He spent five years as the head of Drinker Biddle and said that he had people outside of the firm that he would rely on for advice.  He said he looks forward to doing the same for other firm leaders.

Sweet said he will spend about three-and-a-half to four days a week doing consulting work, spending the rest of his time on two other new projects.

He is about to be named the executive director of a new foundation, the Global Impact Fund, that will donate money to different projects in the Third World. The focus of the fund is on HIV/AIDS, anti-slavery and sex trafficking and micro-finance.

Sweet also recently took on the role of director of new projects at a theological seminary as a favor to a friend.
