I get in very early and try to write something interesting . Then the day takes over and becomes a series of 30 “ slots that can be anything from ‘ launch strategy review ‘ to ‘ talent reviews ‘ . I find that things prioritize themselves but I was once taught that you should just do what’s best for your client .... which is a deceptively simple but useful rubric for assigning urgency .

I am about to transition from being a junior partner at a large law firm (my practice has focused on private equity M&A) to Deputy General Counsel at a large-ish Pubco. I am already giving myself a crash course in public securities and corporate governance from my firm’s training materials and my cap markets partners, but I also wanted to poll the audience for other suggestions on how to become as prepared as possible for my new role please. Thanks in advance!
