I was practising as a young barrister when I realised, soon after admission to the Bar, that about a third of my practice was coming from people I had known at the Law School and particularly from the last firm with which I had worked. About two-thirds of it was coming from Labor solicitors whom I had got to know. I reached the conclusion that the first third would not grow; the second two-thirds would grow and I would end up almost entirely with a negligence practice, cases arising from accidents to workers and so on. At this stage I had not done any industrial arbitration. My floor on top of the A.P.A. Building did not in those days handle much industrial arbitration.
