Today, we’re joined by Digby Leigh, a lawyer in Vancouver, Canada, and author of the ever-popular monthly newsletter, “Let’s Be Frank.” Digby’s day job is that of a corporate lawyer, something he’s been doing in some form or fashion since 1982. If you’re looking for experience, Digby has it. If you’re looking for a refreshing approach, Digby Leigh & Co. has it. And if you’re looking for good people, helping good people do great business, then Digby and his team have it.
We found Digby through his newsletter, his messaging, and his firm’s values. At Digby’s firm, it’s about respect for everyone; doing the right thing; innovating boldly, and approaching solutions from a community-minded perspective.
With nearly forty years experience as a lawyer, Digby leverages his influence as a pioneer in abandoning the billable hour model. It’s literally his life’s work. Because he has divorced his business from the billable hour, his lawyers and paralegals work in an environment where time is not the key driver of their worth. Continuous learning and efficiencies are encouraged.
In this episode, we explore how the sauce is made. A sauce that from the outside looking in leads with, and amplifies, the humanity of clients and anyone who works on their behalf.
