THINK­ING OUT­SIDE THE BOX

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Success Story -

“The tra­di­tional le­gal pro­fes­sion usu­ally sells time, has de­mand­ing dead­lines and often ex­pects lawyers to be at their desks late at night. The at­ti­tude is along the lines of ‘work 80 hours a week or not at all’, and

it’s hard to bal­ance this think­ing with a flex­i­ble work en­vi­ron­ment, which can leave a lot of se­ri­ously ex­pe­ri­enced and pas­sion­ate peo­ple out of the loop. The more mod­ern way of think­ing ar­gues that the time spent on the work and where it is per­formed is less im­por­tant, as long as you’re fo­cused on pro­duc­ing great

re­sults for your client.”
