Kristi Edwards considers the successful business lawyer on legalweeklaw.com

legalweeklaw.com November 2011:

 

“There are fewer ex-lawyers in plc boardrooms, acting as directors of FTSE100 companies than one would expect. Whilst many lawyers excel at intellectual and analytical challenges, they may not be as strong in the subtler behavioural aspects that are vital to anticipating and meeting clients' expectations and blending into a changing, modern business environment.



This briefing from legal recruitment specialists Edwards Gibson offers advice on how to improve the relationship between business lawyer and client by analysing following areas:



● the types of behaviour clients value;



● how expectations can be anticipated and met;



● how to cultivate a style that will translate better in the business environment;



● how to ensure that you are in the best position possible to build and maintain a practice in trying times.”
