Protégé: A 29-year-old firm director on defining success

Achieving high heights as a young lawyer is not about taking the “right steps” up the ladder — success will instead arise by way of identifying the actions one can take to be the best version of one’s self, be happy and healthy in one’s work and ensure one can meaningfully contribute to the community.

On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Pragma Lawyers director Nick Malone about his recent appointment to the West Australian firm’s directorship and what such a promotion means to him, his strategy and trajectory moving forward, what kind of leader he plans to be and how he will give back, in the wake of guidance and mentorship he has received during his career.

Mr Malone also delves into the extent to which that mentorship influenced his vocational pathway versus his own intrinsic drivers, the practical steps one can take to ensure they remain on a path that is true to them, the questions that one can and should ask one’s self in determining direction, his advice on how to stay true to one’s self, and creating one’s own definition of success.
