For today's Monday Mailbag, LegalJob addresses the following question from a big firm junior associate:
I was given a research assignment by a partner who I am told is difficult to work for and is known to be very demanding. Can LegalJob suggest best practices to help ensure smooth sailing?
LegalJob has provided several posts on meeting partner expectations. Check those out and consider the following:
Ask lots of questions (if you have them.)
Paint a broad brush
Develop a framework through which to analyze the legal issue.
Be sensitive to how you deliver your "answer".
