    Client relationships are built on trust and mutual respect. Informing your approach to appropriate, effective and sensitive communication should be understanding of cultural sensitives and responsiveness. With clients coming from a diverse range of cultural and religious backgrounds it is more important than ever that lawyers are equipped to foresee, and act appropriately in varying situations. While this can be difficult in person, it can be even more difficult meeting a client for the first time online. Although technology may help on some occasions, it can sometimes hinder client relationship development.

While there may have been some leniency afforded to practitioners at the beginning of the pandemic when it came to technology, appearance and etiquette, that time has now passed and it is business as usual for virtual hearings.
