My career as a business attorney and counselor is still relatively young, but in working with clients who are conscious not just of potential legal issues, but also of building and maintaining their business reputation in the community, I find myself reflecting on a period, before law school, when I was a reporter for a small town newspaper.

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” This Shakespearean quote resonates as I ponder the value of networking.
If only networking were under the guise of a different name. Personally, I bristle when someone uses the word, ‘networking,’ an odd reaction considering the line of work I am in. I use the term, because of its universal appeal, but sparingly, as I believe there are better ways to articulate how to forge, cultivate and leverage value-add relationships in one’s career.
