Headed “The evolution of Leibler’s law”, the extract describes the firm’s enduring, core strength as “representing clients who are entrepreneurial decision-makers looking for advice beyond black letter legal advice”.
While Arnold Bloch Leibler has evolved to embrace a new generation of clients and lawyers, the extract makes it clear that the culture and values that have made the firm as successful and influential as it is, remain unchanged.
“Every year, Leibler addresses the new intake of graduate lawyers and interns, and the Indigenous interns and law students that ABL mentors as part of the firm’s Reconciliation Action Plan. He gives them essentially the same messages he gave to Noel Pearson when he came to work at ABL in the mid-1990s, the same messages Bloch passed on to Leibler half a century ago: always be there for clients; nurture and grow your contacts; do not be erratic; understand power and learn how to exercise it; return calls; respond to every phone call that same day.”
