3 BUSINESS SOURCES existing clients lawyers others colleagues practicing or in-house lawyer friends, strangers associations 80/20 rule
4 PRODUCT? Creating a new product?
5 PERSONAL specializing? - By market BRAND - By service positioning
6 Do you have any advice to young lawyers in the early years of practice? To be successful today or in the future as a lawyer, you need to specialise. To be an expert in something means doing the same thing again and again. Even if you are a general litigator, you need to specialise in one or two areas. This means studying everything on that subject. Learn as much as you can about the things you are interested in, and that will stand you in good stead. - Chan Sek Keong J (2006)
