To become successful as a lawyer requires a number of positive qualities, hard work and, usually, time. You can speed up the process of becoming successful however by building up your own personal following of clients giving you momentum which will bring you and your abilities to the attention of those who can help you in your career or giving you more choices in your career.
To become known you will have to meet people and attend events where you are likely to meet new clients and helpful contacts. The initial pitfall which many young lawyers fall into is to assume that effort is the same as progress. It’s not. There is little point in a business lawyer networking and socialising with other business lawyers if the intention was to find new clients. They should instead be socialising with business organisations where the business clients go. If you want to work in entertainment law then go to every club and restaurant opening you can- its where show business people gather to be seen and photographed and where you are likely to meet new clients. >>>>>>
