My area of practice encompasses mainly non-contentious with specific types of contentious work. Last year it was a lot of contractual/advice stuff which I enjoy but lately I have been allocated a varied mixed caseload of crown/high court stuff (can’t reveal area it’s too outy).
In short, I need to improve. I am not a natural at this, I don’t have the confrontational instinct that proper litigation solicitors have and I need to be more strategic. Particularly when responding to threatening emails… My team are all super busy and at capacity and I can’t ask.
Litigators, what should I be doing. Do you have any tips/ work habits that make your life easier /books to read?
(and no I can’t move to Dubai)….
