Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
As business people, we regularly ask ourselves if what we’re doing makes sense strategically. (Yes, we have a strategic plan.) Our goal is to be the best small law firm in a limited number of specialized practice areas. So, we have chosen not to take on every type of case that comes to us. Consequently, we’ve developed real expertise in a few areas, and try not to be distracted or lured into other specialties. One of the hardest things we have to do as lawyers is say no to friends who ask, “Couldn’t you just take a quick look at this … contract … employment agreement … lease … etc.?”
