A Comparison of Lawyers and Salespeople

We believe that great salespeople are everywhere. We’re so sure, in fact, that we’re asking you to challenge us to find the link, in any profession. This time, we shed a light on lawyers and their similarities to salespeople.


The diversity of skills required by a lawyer are vast. Diligence, thoroughness, an eye for detail, tenacity, and personality to name but a few traits that make a lawyer valuable. To help understand the skills that are inherent in both top lawyers and that are also needed to succeed in sales, we’ve enlisted the help of two lawyers with almost half a century’s experience between them. Meet Tim Sewart, Head of Commercial, Media and Technology at Memery Crystal LLP and Duncan Reid, Corporate and Commercial Partner at Watson Burton LLP.
