Biggest challenge: “Navigating the Great Recession has been the biggest challenge I have faced.  The traditional model of the practice of law has been fundamentally changed.  Fortunately, well before the Great Recession, our firm had already embraced different business models with the continued focus of providing exceptional legal services while providing the best value for our clients.”

Best advice received: “The best business advice I ever received was from my parents. They told me do the right thing, treat people with respect and good things will follow.”

Best advice to offer: “Do not allow the fear of failure to dictate the vision of your business.”

Greatest accomplishment: “Every day, we provide creative legal solutions to our clients and help them reach their business objectives, and we do this while fostering a vibrant, inclusive workplace where people can develop and succeed.   never forget how much our clients, and our people, rely on us to perform our jobs at the highest level.”

“Lawyers are always assessing risk and finding ways to limit it, but sometimes being a good entrepreneur is not about that.  It’s about taking a leap of faith and forging ahead on some of these fronts.  All of us have to deal with a new reality.  That reality includes alternative fees, new operating models, unbundling, and defining and building new client relationships.” Parga states.
