Life after corporate law

Written by
Life after corporate lawAt the end of summer 2013, I decided to leave my career as a New York City corporate lawyer behind.
While there were many reasons for why I chose to leave practice, the most important one was my dream of becoming a writer. Three years later, I may finally be on my way.

San Pellegrino Blues — Part 2
-    Hi Melissa . . . Look, I’m not sure how to break this to you but, um, something’s come up and I have to stay at the office and work all night.

When it comes to demonstrating 'value,' what’s old is new againWhen talking about business development, people talk a lot about “creating value” but much less often about what that actually means. It is difficult to articulate in absolutes what “value” means because it will be different depending on the circumstances. It will depend on what needs are held by the person for whom you want to create “value,” what skillset you have, the nature of your relationship, the maturity of your relationship, any interests you share and more.

Thankfully, Biff Tannen will not be president

I'm going to boldly make a prediction (two weeks before the election in the United States) that Hillary Clinton will become the next U.S. president and that Donald Trump (who former prime minister Kim Campbell publicly called a "self-celebrating sexual predator") will not become groper-in-chief.

Defence counsel hit hardest by antiquated court processesThe wheels of our criminal justice system move slowly — and the wheels should move slowly. Justice must be dispensed carefully and deliberately since mistakes can destroy lives. But a deliberative process is too often a convenient and lazy excuse for dependence on antiquated processes — our justice system is stuck in the 1980s. If you don’t believe me, let me send you a fax of my casebook.
Bad vibrations: Sex toy class action comes to CanadaWhile those of us who follow the growth of the Internet of Things have become somewhat inured to the privacy and security concerns associated with smart meters, networked entertainment systems, refrigerators and autonomous cars, a recent U.S. class action has presented something entirely new to stress about: “smart” sex toys.

10 ways to deal with difficult clientsThe Pareto principle states that 80 per cent of results are derived from 20 per cent of input. This 80/20 rule can describe difficult clients: 80 per cent of your grief will come from 20 per cent of your clients.
Knowing how to handle that 20 per cent is imperative to a healthy practice.
