WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

It has been a busy week here at HIGH PERFORMANCE COUNSEL – engaging in dialog with industry participants, on-boarding new clients and rolling out our fresh new look (with some exciting functionality behind the scenes).

This week we enjoyed engaging with some really fabulous people and organizations out there who definitely “get it”. There are too many to mention everyone individually but here we highlight a few who deserve a special mention.

LITIGATION RISK MANAGEMENT: WHAT IS THE MORAL TO YOUR LITIGATION STORY?

Courtrooms can be interesting places. Juries are people like the rest of us – and they instinctively seek answers. If you don’t tell the story, the jury will create their own – and you may not like how that turns out. This expert article – presented in conjunction with leading consulting firm BLUEPRINT – speaks to why there are good reasons for trial attorneys to present their cases in story form.  Research has consistently shown that stories are more likely to be comprehended and recalled.  Moreover, when information is not presented in story form, people tend to reorganize the information into stories anyway.  The danger of not providing stories at trial is that jurors will create their own stories to fit the evidence and to fill any gaps which may be inconsistent with a client’s position. Is that a risk you’re willing to take?

BRING IT. INSPIRED AND INSPIRATIONAL LEGALTECH CEO LECIA KASLOFSKY ON HARD-EARNED SUCCESS AND MORE IN THE #BAKERSDOZEN

Successful Legaltech Founder & CEO Lecia Kaslofsky has the instincts and the inspiration of a winner. Taking the path less trodden, she speaks the story of hard-earned success. When we asked what inspires her? “Olympic athletes inspire me. Musicians inspire me. People who put in the work each and every day and then make it look facile, triumphant even. I love this quote by Michelangelo: ‘If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.’ And also this one by Thomas Edison: “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.’..”

We interviewed Jack Newton, CEO and Co-Founder of Clio for the infamous #BakersDozen. When the history of modern law is written, Jack will feature prominently. Spotting the opportunity for cloud technology in legal services early on, he evidences a powerful case study in vision, persistence and execution.
