It would be disingenuous to suggest that those who deliver a professional service do not want to be highly rewarded. Further, the professional wants the enrichment which flows from the efforts they make and to have these rewards continue, year after year.
This is a natural objective, and many achieve it. That said, all who do, will have to rely upon the professional expertise of others.
Those who operate in a marketplace, often express their need to share information and discuss what is perceived to be problematic to others. In doing so they can obtain ‘nuggets’ of information that will remove obstacles. In return, you can assist them, so the engagements made will become an intellectual currency.
Put simply a lawyer is probably a bad accountant and an engineer is likely to be a bad doctor, and so on. However by consulting, by engaging and being assisted by others, you have the recipe for a good business should you fully exploit the opportunity.
In legal matters, barristers need solicitors; solicitors need paralegals; and law firms need clients. The commonality in all successful businesses is the quality of the management, the need to delegate and make connections with others, to service your business needs.
In the event you have a successful argument which you are exploiting to win many cases, should you share your argument with others, who in turn share their successful arguments with you, your standing and percentage of victories will increase making you an expert, which in turn allows you to command higher rewards for the expert you are. The whole exercise becomes a currency all of its own.
