Understandably, most lawyers tie their professional identities to their employers. For example, a lawyer not only introduces himself as Joe Attorney, a partner with XYZ firm, but also has created a similar internal persona that defines him. While this is admirable, especially with respect to promoting your firm or company, it is important to remember that, if you cut through everything, you are a one-person enterprise. Regardless of whether it is ultimately defensible, you could be fired tomorrow, no matter who you are. Similarly, your law firm, even if it has been around for decades, could be gone quickly — as we have seen happen in recent years — or your company could be sold or merged out of existence.
