Isidoro Bonilla, a senior Solicitor/Abogado at Levenes who specialises in Foreign Claims, spoke at the Young Lawyers Group Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL YLG) in Prague on 23 March 2018. He spoke jointly with Rebeca Martinez from BCV Lex, also dual qualified French and Spanish lawyer, about making the most of the non-legal and additional skills.

The talk was based on a non-legal topic but was very necessary to the performance and delivery of the duties of a lawyer.

Isidoro shared his experience in becoming a dual qualified lawyer and working in another jurisdiction. He also provided information about the importance of commercial awareness and networking. Rebeca’s talk underlined the challenges ahead that lawyers encounter when organising their own time and tasks.

As a conclusion of the soft skills talk Rebeca and Isidoro provided some helpful tips and a dos and don’ts checklist.

The conference was a great success where young lawyers specialised in international injury from all Europe attended.

I do want to thank you very much for all you did in handling our case and taking us through what was a difficult journey, particularly for me. I found it very emotional and frustrating a lot of the time, and you handled the situation (and me and my husband!) very well, and I am genuinely unsure anyone else would have been able to do that. I appreciated you were so approachable and I could be entirely honest with you, and air my frustrations, and you could take all that in your stride and as ever be professional. Thank you.
