Corporate Lawyers' Business Development

2017 - 05 - 09

2017.05.09

It is reported that recent judicial reform propositions in Taiwan have sparked controversies among legal professions. As the result, the number of retiring judges and prosecutors has increased this year and is expected to grow rapidly in the future.

Most judges and prosecutors, after leaving their public service, continue their legal careers as attorneys. This makes the already saturated legal-service market even more competitive. Many young legal professionals find it difficult to survive, let alone making decent livings. At eCounsel Group, a rather large emphasis on self-improvement and personal growth for young talents has been placed. Though it is never too late to learn, we understand that one may very well feel worn out having constantly to acquire new skills while shouldering even greater personal plus family responsibilities associated with his aging.

When the supply of a product exceeds the demand, the pressure to reduce price takes place in order to make the product more attractive. The legal service market certainly is no exception. As a result, young lawyers need to differentiate themselves through advanced knowledge of subjects other than simply the law.

Since early this year, our in-house training program “eCounsel Read” has been implemented with the focus on studying “the news, the law and the business model” in depth. The program not only helps build a stronger team within eCounsel Group’s affiliated companies, but also equips our lawyers with cross-disciplinary knowledge and social skills necessary when taking on more challenging tasks. At eCounsel Group, tremendous efforts are dedicated to design an effective and rewarding development scheme.

The undeniable fact is that the number of lawyers has skyrocketed in both Taiwan and elsewhere in the wolrd. With the proliferating advancement of artificial intelligence, it is foreseeable that many jobs in the legal service industry will be essentially replaced by robots. Fortunately, skilled lawyers with interdisciplinary backgrounds are still in great demand.

The Core Problem of Taiwan's National Health Insurance

Our health insurance is a public insurance. It should not operate like a private one. The reimbursements should only cover generic drugs not brand-name drugs. 新聞眼/加錢可選原廠藥 醫療階級化 「……國人就醫用藥將有重大變革。衛福部指示健保署試辦「藥品差額負擔試辦計畫」,明年一月一日起,比照人工水晶體、心血管支架等醫材,針對部分健保未給付的原廠藥,以學名藥價給付,民眾若負擔價差,就能使用原廠藥…」 「……民眾對於藥品常處於資訊弱勢,差額負擔會讓民眾誤以為藥品療效有差異;若是必要使用的藥品,就應健保給付,何必要民眾自行負擔?若訂定差額負擔,民眾就醫會被依財力來分等級,甚至可能引發醫院誘導患者選擇自費藥品,恐造成有錢買生,沒錢買死…」 http://ppt.cc/z90o8 綜觀本篇新聞報導內容,撰稿者顯未探究健保作為「社會保險」的本質為何。 對於政府的作為,我很少表達肯定。對於我自己、對我自己所創立的各個事業,更是這樣。不自我鞭策,哪來的進步? 但衛福部的這一步,我則認為,是終於找到正確的方向了。 我在四年前受亞洲藥學會 (FAPA) 的邀請,在第一屆學名藥研討會中發表了…
