The Truth about Lawyers

Image

Those of you reading this article looking for the latest lawyer joke will likely be let down in the text that follows. This part is not meant to be yet one more bashing gathering directed at the legal professional, but rather to give you firm information on how to avoid the common mistakes that even the brightest and most tested executives make in attempting to successfully work with and manage attorneys.

I grew up in a legal family, have been a managing director of a law firm, recruited and managed legal staffs as a C-suite executive and have dealt with many an outside counsel as an industrialist. I have both sued and been sued, and suffice it to say I know the good, the bad and the ugly about the legal profession.

As with any other profession there are excellent practitioners, center of the road journeyman, well anticipated light-weights who try hard but consistently find themselves in over their heads, brilliant academics with no practical experience or common sense, and yes, there are a few rouges and scoundrels as well.

The reality is that most people that have an unhelpful experience with the judicial system blame the lawyer. If the applicant or the defendant doesn’t achieve the expected outcome it must be the attorney’s fault. It is this author’s humble opinion that the truth about lawyers is that most people honestly get what they justify. However if you adhere to the following best practices when entering into and managing an attorney client relationship you will fare better than most.

1. Hire the best legal advice you can afford, not the cheapest you can find. As with any profession there is value in experience and knowledge as well as an aggressive advantage to be gained with talent, reputation and relations. Never vacillate to get a second opinion as there are very few stock answers to a legal issue.

2. A lawyer is no different than any other dealer or supplier and they should be put through the same level of inspection (in my opinion a higher level of inquiry) as anyone else in your supply chain. I adopted the practice quite some time ago of putting my legal work out to bid through a managed request for qualifications (RFQ) and request for proposal (RFP) process. I assess my needs, identify my requirements and seek to find the best representation possible by having attorneys contend for my business on my terms.

3. Common direction is fine, but only if they are managing the right expert. A generalist cobbling collectively documents by pulling a template down from a Westlaw search is a far cry from having true subject matter expertise. All attorneys are not created equal. Hire the right lawyer at the right time for the right reason.

4. Along the lines of number three on top of, a smart attorney doesn’t of necessity translate into a good attorney. Most lawyers don’t graduate from law school with any formal business training and fewer have any real world business experience upon graduation. It is imperative that you select guidance that is not only a subject matter expert in his/her practice area, but that also has very sound business sharpness. If an attorney is not fluent in my business they won’t be retained by me to represent my business…end of story.

5. The best way to manage your legal risk is to be practical not hasty. Assess your legal risks and take destructive and upbeat events to mitigate said risks. I developed the shortest legal mission statement on record and require any attorney who represents me to use it to as their operating mantra; it simply states: “foresee and padding”. The best defense is a great offense when it comes to legal work.

Civil law has a lot of fields as well as business laws, corporate laws, intellectual property laws, family laws, personal injury laws, probate laws, real estate laws, tax laws, etc. Civil law is a division of law commerce with disputes between individuals and/or organizations, in which reimburse may be awarded to the casualty. A civil lawyer not only represents the client in a legal taking place but also provides legal advice to the client in civil transactions.

Civil law comprehends all law that is not criminal law. Civil law seeks to resolve non-criminal disputes such as disagreements over the meaning of contracts, property ownership, divorce, child custody, and compensation for personal and property damage. Civil lawyers handle lawsuits that involve individuals, businesses, and even the government.

Civil lawyers will generally choose one or more areas of law to specialize in. If you need support with tax laws, you should go to a civil lawyer who specializes in tax laws.

How to Be a Good Corporate Lawyer

Image

Good Corporate Lawyers in Delhi

Standard lawyers flourish, good lawyers are common, but great corporate lawyers are hard to find. What is the mantra that makes a good lawyer GREAT and GOOD? Great lawyers love what they do and it is this passion towards their work that separates them from unevenness.

Step 1=> Know your subject & law carefully. In-depth and sound understanding of the substantive law is a must. Know your subject, its nuances, interpretations and important case laws to have a command on the law that you are practicing. No amount of communication or writing skills can gloss over the lack of knowledge in law which comes from continuous reading & practice. Repetitive reading of law with an open mind brings different connotations and opens the door for creative interpretations. I have personally read same clause differently at different times which new outlook each time.

Step 2=> Know the facts crusty & clear. Complete understanding of the facts of the transaction helps accurate application of law as law applies differently to different facts. No two matters are similar so grasp the facts correctly to charge an issue. Delusion of a fact may change the whole structure and the end result sought to be achieved. My senior and mentor in law Mrs. Pooja Jha had the ability to get to the core of the matter by vertical power of crispy reading and simplicity of thought. I continuously strive for that clarity.

Step 3=> Understand the purpose required to be achieved. Empathize with the needs of your client, dynamics of the transaction and what is future to be achieved. Alignment with the objectives of your client coupled with certain analytical & appraisal skills helps in gaining long lasting confidence of the client. One possible way of gaining this insight is by having a serious need to know your client’s business and by feeling the passion he/she feels for the issue.

Step 4=> Know your atmosphere. Make a aware attempt to read new developments in the practice area that you are specializing in; understand its dynamics, rules and regulations, latest amendments and changes in law and the transactions closed in the sector. This will help in gaining the self-assurance of the client and also structuring the transaction better. Client’s prospect from a good corporate lawyer is usually a mix of good legal understanding and sound commercial appraisal/suggestion.

Step 5=> Keep the Right manner. It is the attitude that separates patchiness from greatness in any profession. Sincerely loving the work that you do makes all the dissimilarity to the advice given. Believing in the work one does and the clients one represents is important to ignite that all so important obsession – so therefore do not accept briefs that you not go well with your own belief system. There are times when I refuse briefs/transactions that require me to render advice or undertake work that goes basically against my worth system. Corroboration of one’s obligation towards work and aiming for the fulfillment of the client also helps.

Step 6=> Focus on interpersonal relationship and be available when it matters the most. Learn to listen (and not only hear) to the viewpoint of not only your clients but also your opponents, support team, and other connections. Watch closely how they think and what makes them happy – stroke their achievements. Being perceptive and point of view is one of the toughest parts of being a great lawyer and being available for most part of the day is the other. However, ease of access brings trust and steadfastness – so go for it.

In my experience as a corporate lawyer, the single principal inspiring factor that keeps me going is my fervor for work, approval of my clients and the pure happiness it gives me. There are no classes that one can attend to become a great lawyer – what ultimately counts are the way we move toward our profession and I still have miles to go…
