About this title

Synopsis:

This book is as much about what it takes to be a successful person as it is about becoming a successful lawyer. Being a good lawyer requires technical skill, of course. But it also requires other types of skill -- for example, skills in building relationships, mentoring others, planning for the future, and communicating persuasively.

A good lawyer is, at various times, savvy, aggressive, sensitive, outgoing, or cautious. Knowing when to do what and when to be what depends on human qualities such as judgement, empathy, honesty, and confidence.

In this book, these -- extra -- qualities are valued in the context of building a business. Young lawyers (and old ones, too) will benefit from the perspective in this thoughtful and thought-provoking book.

About the Author:

Harry V. Ruffalo spent 33 years as a tax accountant with the global firm, Arthur Andersen. From 1984-1989, he managed 400 tax professionals (more than 70 percent of them lawyers) as the partner-in-charge of the firm's Chicago tax practice.

In 1989, he was named head of the firm's worldwide Tax, Legal, and Business Advisory practice of 12,000 professionals serving clients in more than 95 countries. He headed the tax, legal, and business advisory practices until 1997.

Since 1993, Mr. Ruffalo has taught the course, The Business of Law, at the University of Wisconsin Law School. He continues to teach the course since retiring from Arthur Andersen.

Mr. Ruffalo received a BBA from the University of Wisconsin Business School in 1964 and a JD from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1967.
