Human Rights, Export Credits and Development Cooperation

Accountability for Bilateral Agencies

Barbara Linder

This book analyses to what extent the current human rights system allows affected individuals to claim accountability for human rights violations resulting from bilateral development and export credit agency supported undertakings. The author explores three legal pathways: host state responsibility, home state responsibility and corporate responsibility. The book concludes with recommendations on how to strengthen human rights accountability and improve access to justice for adversely affected individuals. It will be of great interest to those researching the intersection between human rights, development cooperation, and investment.

We present ideas about how to sustain a new firm well into the future. Sustainability is often overlooked when all eyes are on handling cases and growing a new business, but if it is ignored, all the time, money, hopes, and work you’ve invested in your venture can be brought down fairly quickly. These will be the principles and practices of nurturing the long-term health of your new firm.

In this chapter we describe our story and how we came to understand the fundamental strategy to which we attribute our success. We identify this strategy as business niche specialization. We describe how we used business niche specialization to our advantage, why business niche specialization is ideal for independent law firm and career success, and how to pick the right business niche for building a successful law practice. This chapter sets the foundation of the book – the business niche specialization strategy – which supports the remaining chapters’ discussions of other business tactics and practices complementary to this strategy.

Are you a lawyer who’s fed up by the grueling hours, the scarcity of respect and a lack of opportunities to build your career for the long term? Are you a law student who’s graduating without a solid job prospect? Do you seek a way to gain agency over the future of your legal career? Do you suspect that the conventional wisdom about a legal career is flawed? Do you feel that there must be a better route to career prosperity as a lawyer? We are going to share how we flipped the script on the conventional legal career “wisdom” and built a multimillion dollar law practice in a few short years, before turning 30. We will teach you how to use the lessons we learned to take control of your legal career and grow your own independent law practice using the strategy and tactics identified and explained in this book.

In this chapter, we examine a critical decision in the process of starting a business niche law firm: whether or not, and with whom one should begin a partnership. We identify three key factors which are critical to partnership compatibility: trust, complementarity of skills and motivational alignment. We then detail the hows and whys of vetting a prospective partnership for long-term likelihood of compatibility and future success.
