Smarter thinking from your travel companion on the journey from baseline to brilliance
RPC managing partner Jonathan Watmough on why the Corporate Counsel Forum is an essential fixture in the thinking general counsel's calendar
For most of us, by the time that we get to our mid-30s, much of the desired general direction of our professional life has been set – law firm lawyers are hoping for partnership in an area of law in a firm that they like, and in-house lawyers are settling into a preferred sector and deciding whether to aim to be a subject matter expert lead or to aim for a general counsel role via the intermediate step of being a business partner lawyer.
It’s at this point we start to realise that, far from travelling alone on our journey, there are actually maybe 100 people following parallel-ish tracks where our interests coalesce with theirs intermittently over the remaining 30-40 years of our careers; and maybe 30-50 people whose tracks are so aligned that we see them and engage with them regularly.
