Editor's note: You can find a niche practice in many ways. A chance interaction could lead you to a client with specialized needs. A change in law can create opportunities for those willing to dedicate the time to understand the new law. A lawyer may make the calculated decision to pursue an untapped market. All are fine ways or reasons to develop a niche practice. But in niche practices, like most things in life, tapping into a passion will lead to the better results.
I live a dual life. I’m a lawyer and a literary agent. Sometimes these worlds collide, but usually they amount to separate lives.
