Do I need to leave the law or leave my firm?
Mo Salah leaving Roma, does a lawyer need to move firms to flourish? Sometimes things just click don’t they?! Mo Salah at Roma was good. But the Mo Salah at Liverpool, different class. What a great fit! Now call me a cynic but I don’t think he’s turned into Messi overnight, I do think he’s an excellent player but his form (40 goals this season) is not just down to him but the team around him – and possibly most importantly the manager. Jurgen Klopp has found the right balance with players like Salah, Firminio and Mane who have all embraced the system and are flourishing. In isolation this is a great example of how a team all pulling in the same direction is a powerful thing - the sum of the parts and all that! This example can be easily transferred into a legal context, a lawyer who isn’t at the right firm may not hit target or isn’t able to reach their potential. A move, for the right opportunity, could quite easily be your Mo Salah moment. Whether you are an NQ or 15 year PQE solicitor, sometimes having that right fit can be just what you need to excel.
