In the „Dzienniku Gazeta Prawna” daily Bogusław Leśnodorski attorney talks to Patryk Słowik editor
In a personal interview Bogusław talks about the interesting although often not an easy path that a lawyer has to pass. It is also a conversation about the condition of the legal profession in Poland and its development perspectives.
- A lawyer from the year 2000 is becoming a relic of the past. Today a client does not approach a law firm requesting it to establish a company, but to be told what type of company is to be established and why.
A lawyer must also go beyond established models. – I believe that a dispute between two parties is like war. I am a soldier on the battlefield. Say, a colonel. I have to get involved. […] In my opinion the most important issue is to represent the client properly, so that the client can rely on his lawyer. I would rather balance on a tight rope than not be wholly committed. There is nothing worse than a lawyer who is not doing his very best. It’s like on a football field. We are likely to forgive our team if they play a bad match, but we will never forgive them for just walking past.
