In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with M A Legal associate Jeremy Koadlow about his professional journey and work in hospitality venues, what such work taught him about managing and serving people, the perspective he gleaned that other lawyers can learn from, and how important and valuable non-traditional pathways can be for one’s journey.

Koadlow also reflects on the need for authenticity in one’s interactions with clients, the place for resilience in one’s work, why it is OK (and indeed useful) to have experienced a non-linear pathway in law and in one’s career, and how best those coming through the ranks can gain more perspective on working life and bolster their offerings for clients.
