Great insight from Vicky Sandry, General Counsel at Sky.  

I felt a little unsure even writing the above title and using the word 'fail' in conjunction with legal services.  We are there to serve and protect and if we fail we often feel there will be catastrophic consequences to our clients and our personal reputation, but life is all about learning from perceived failures.  

We learn to walk by falling down many times until we are strong enough to balance, and in the legal context trying different approaches to find solutions to problems is the equivalent.  Managed failure/risk is what we are good at.  So long as we manage the downside we should be fearless in our attempts at improving our profession and our work.  Enjoy reading this interview with Vicky.
