BLM senior partner, Mike Brown has spoken about the firm’s record financial results, its future direction and equality and diversity in a wide ranging interview with The Brief.
As well as discussing the firm, Mike also provides an insight into his own career path, background and what he feels makes a good lawyer.
“I think what makes a good lawyer is a mixture of capabilities. You need to be able to quickly digest significant information, be able to simplify the complex issues, and advise your customer in the best way possible. A good lawyer needs to be able to show understanding and empathy with a customer, and to be able to quickly gain the confidence of the customer. If you can achieve these things then you are on your way to becoming a good lawyer. However, I think the aspiration should be to become a great lawyer.”
