On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Gale Family Law director David Gale about some of the setbacks he has faced in his life and why he chose to share those in the public forum of LinkedIn recently, the impact of those setbacks and how he has responded in order to move forward, both personally and professionally.

Mr Gale also reflects on the lessons that can and should be gleaned from experiencing certain setbacks, the practical approaches he has applied in navigating those setbacks and what works and doesn’t work, safeguarding one’s self and one’s business from future potential hurdles, whether boutique firm owners can be better at talking about the setbacks they’re facing, and how best he thinks they can discuss them with a broader audience.
