New York Court Reporting

Our court reporting agency, Toby Feldman Inc., has always tried whenever possible to help other court reporting firms in New York City and also court reporting companies nationwide who we compete with when they need a court reporter and lend many court reporting firms in New York our conference room free of charge and allow other New York City court reporting firms to not only use our NYC conference room but bring in their own reporter. So I ask, how does this harm me? I am not losing any court reporting clients. These are their clients. I am not losing my court reporter for the day. Am I in harm of their court reporter stealing some valuable company secrets? So why is it that so many court reporting firms do not give these same professional courtesies? It would be a much nicer world for of us if we were just a little nicer and more thoughtful to each other.
