  4. Deepen Client Relationships: This involves understanding their business deeply and tailoring your legal advice to not only address their legal issues but also to advance their business goals.
  5. Cultivate an Adaptive Workplace Culture: Emphasise flexibility, diversity, and inclusion in your workplace practices to support a multi-generational team in a way that encourages collaboration and innovation.
