Lawyers on Fire Podcast

Innovation. Passion. Purpose. Lawyers are boring. No imagination, no drive. They are trained to raise concerns. Seeking security rather than opportunity. Play it by the rulebook rather than finding new ways. Many may be like this. Still there is good news: some are different. This podcast gives a voice to these shining examples of leading lawyers who act beyond their profession. Who understand the big picture and who shape the future. Whom we admire. Whom we need. Who inspire us.
