I will never forget this lesson …

The first thing I learned as a lawyer is …

to keep my mouth shut! Not to each other or to the client, but in relation to our work and our clients. Confidentiality is of course a given, but extremely important and applies always and everywhere. Also at home! Especially in the real estate industry, everyone knows everyone…
