Trick Question: ‘What do you do?’

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Simone_Hughes-1.jpgA great “elevator pitch” is an essential component in your networking toolkit. A good one will spark interest and propel you into an engaging conversation. The test of a great elevator pitch is if the other party ends up asking you for your business card and an invitation to meet with you again.

Conrad Black and that meddlesome Supreme Court

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_tonywilson.jpgI’ve always found Conrad Black to be an intellectual force to be reckoned with since I read his book on Maurice Duplessis for a Canadian history class I took in the ’70s at the University of Western Ontario (as it was then called). His command of English compels his readers to either step up to their “A” game (with their dictionaries firmly in hand), or give up. He may still be Lord of Crossharbour, but he’s also the “Lord of Large Words” (where smaller ones will do). He’s smug and pompous but always entertaining and insightful (even when he’s smug and pompous).

You are an expert in your area, are well paid for the advice and provide a sound, unassailable opinion. The clients structure their financial and personal affairs to follow a future path of conduct aimed at ensuring growth, security, and prosperity.

The power of embracing change

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Standard_photos_Christopher-Pinnington.jpgSome 18 months ago, I was asked to share my thoughts with Canadian Lawyer readers on how Canadian law firms can compete successfully in a rapidly changing global legal market. At that time, our firm was embracing transformative change by combining to form Dentons, dramatically expanding our footprint, and creating a global platform to better serve our clients.

Getting some respect: OSS out of the shadows

Almost every standard software licence agreement was completely silent on this point.

Networking is what you enjoy

Written by
I have met many lawyers who genuinely do not enjoy networking in the traditional sense. They identify themselves as introverts and feel that engaging in small talk or attending a social event is a waste of their time.
