“It’s legal because I wish it.”
In essence, law exists to promote fairness. To ensure this, lawyers in turn exist to communicate knowledge about law. In this way, everybody gets what they deserve.
Well, not in the world I operate in.
In this world companies, their leaders and owners manipulate their surroundings to advance their own interests. Towards this goal, law is a powerful tool. Experienced individuals learn this over time.
Nobody speaks of it. However, mastering the law increases the chances of success independently of other relevant factors. In this way, law may trump “fairness”, “trust”, “results”, “performance”, “risk taking” and “work ethic”.
