Three years after leaving Biglaw for a young litigation-finance firm, is she glad she made the move?
Commercial litigation provides anyone within it with unparalleled experience in the wide range of business disputes that it encompasses under its umbrella.
Most on-screen dramas do not come close to depicting what litigation is like in real life. Make sure your clients understand this.
Try to make an effort to be a little better at knowing your limitations, and be a little more willing to swallow your pride and ask for help.
This is a real skill that needs to be developed on the job, and all midlevel associates will learn how to do it eventually.
The law is moving in the right direction, but so slowly.
To win for our clients, we have to be ready to set aside the fighting sometimes and try to get to settlement.
Should someone feel guilty about having won when you should have lost? Why?
How you present your story can win or lose your case.
Real trial work is not like TV. It takes very unsexy hard work and sheer will to win the day.
