As a lawyer who usually works solo with occasional assistance from casual helpers, I have learned the vital importance of networking. Not only with people from other professions, but with other lawyers. For me, having a reliable network of competent lawyers who can supplement what I am able to offer my clients is a great resource. It means that I can refer my clients to those colleagues with confidence.
Unfortunately, not all lawyers understand the power of working collaboratively. In fact, I would say that most lawyers are extremely competitive in their approach to work and have no idea what collaboration outside their firms means. They see each other as rivals, not really as colleagues.
Because I would like to work collaboratively with other lawyers, and to assist them not just by referring clients but in other ways, I have joined together with some other legal professionals who have similar views to create the Eureka Law Network. The name and the logo (shown above) evoke the memory of an event in Australian history when a group of independent-minded people defied the established way of doing things. Every now and again, it is important to do that.
