I find it fulfilling and I am at my best when working on complex matters, such as negotiating and arbitrating, drafting marketing agreements for agricultural products, securing licensing, and drafting distribution agreements for technology products and services at the international level, because I am able to clarify the important issues and recommend a practical business approach.
I strongly encourage our professionals to become socially involved not only because it involves giving back to one’s community but also because it allows a person to grow in what is often a different role. Doing so also adds interesting people to your social network, sometimes even expanding your business network, and it contributes to the firm’s good reputation.
