Must-have skills for successful lawyers

Posted on 24/04/2013

What are the most important skills that a lawyer must have to be successful?

In general opinion, every lawyer must communicate persuasively, write in a concise, clear and logical manner, and most of all, have a strong knowledge of substantive law and legal procedure.
This is certainly right! But are we sure these skills are enough?

Probably a good lawyer, sorry… a successful lawyer needs something more.

Due to the exponential growth of the number of lawyers during past years (as we said here), specialization is essential.
Moreover, since the needs of the client may transcend the skills and specializations of one attorney, teamwork is essential.
