On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Hazelbrook Legal partner, Aabid Farouk, about his journey in law and towards the partnership of award-winning firm Hazelbrook Legal, what it feels like to make partner, how one can begin to take steps to transition into one’s new role and duties, and the questions to be asking of one’s self in this process.

Mr Farouk also reflects on the lessons he learned in those initial months of partnership, what works and doesn’t work, making up lost ground if one hasn’t taken the right steps, proactive versus reactive actions, making the necessary mindset shifts, what excites him about the experience of new partners coming through the ranks, and his broader words of wisdom for those joining the partnership.
