Defining a true professional

An article in a legal journal recently hailed the rise of new specialisms within the legal community, implying that these represented a sign of health for the overall profession. As an example, it cited the emergence of a handful of specialists in the use of e-mojis in contracts or legal judgments. It might equally have pointed to others who are striving to make contracts intelligible through the use of graphics, or perhaps those who push for standards in style. Such individuals are actually at the forefront in trying to address market needs and realities. Although they are often dismissed by their colleagues as odd, quirky, perhaps even viewed as a threat to professional norms, it is these individuals who keep a profession healthy and relevant. They are key to its survival and, arguably, are the 'true professionals'.

Many would argue that he also suffered from a lack of negotiation skills. Unfortunately for him, neither he nor his followers were members of IACCM and the records suggest that in any case he would have ignored advice. Ultimately, he paid a heavy price for his failures at dispute management.
