What have been the most important legal issues in communications for you in the past year?
What is your golden rule for negotiating?
My golden rules for negotiation are (1) there is no shame in being reasonable, (ii) it’s often more productive in a negotiation to practice psychology than law, and (iii) listening skills are the most important of all.
If you could be any legal thriller writer, who would you want to be and why?
Lisa Scottoline because, in addition to legal thrillers, she writes humorous essays that have been compared to Nora Ephron’s, such as “Does this Beach Make Me Look Fat?” and “I’ve Got Sand in all the Wrong Places”.
What movie superhero would you most like to be and how would that character fit into the legal world of communications?
My movie superhero is Paddington whose current movie shows him to be a bear with great communications skills, a highly developed sense of logic and fairness, and the ability to solve mysteries and find solutions to seemingly intractable problems.
