5. Commercial. Imperative
If you're not a smart lawyer, you won't be much use to us. If you're not smart at business, you won't be much use to clients.They don't just want law – they want advice, from people who get the commercial context and can spot the business implications. If you want to be on top, not just on tap, you need to master the business of law, and not just business law. So expect to get your hands dirty – from Day One. Working with clients not photocopying reports. Delivering results not cappuccinos. Whether through training, secondments to industry or five minute debriefs on the way back from meetings, you'll learn business alongside law. No surprise then that clients voted RPC lawyers amongst the most commercial in the profession.
