What advice would you offer a young lawyer who is starting out?
Aspiring to multidisciplinary practices – in an era of specialization and specific know-how there is also a need to see the complete picture. It is recommended for a lawyer starting out 'to taste" as far as possible various areas of the law, so that afterwards when he is choosing the main path to act in, he will have in his tool box the ability inferred in other areas of law and involvement.
Patience – legal procedures are for the long term, and the fruits ripen sometimes over years.
Specialization – the legal tool box requires familiarity with new rulings and legislation and understanding of real-time developments.
