How do you approach a Partner about an extremely difficult client without sounding like you are complaining or can't manage the client?

Approach by asking for their advice, nit just to complain, and have a proposed solution to the problem. It might not be the right solution, but it shows that you have done your work on the issue.

Disrespectful is one way of putting it I guess

Consider whether this is a "we have a problem" situation or a "you need to sack up" situation. Not all disrespectful clients are a threat to the project. Of course there's a line between a client who is a dick bag and a client who is actually creating a hostile work environment. Harassment should never be tolerated. Douchey clients sometimes need to be.

IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.

I have had many people that have transferred into FDD the past 8 months from audit and they end up hating it and keeping the turnover going. Wish the firms actually portrayed what these new consultants are getting into. Hours are more unpredictable, right now you will be working 55 to 60 hours a week probably twice a month. Wish there was more realistic recruiting at this point

I heard that when Netflix hires outside counsel, it asks a series of questions to determine how credit is given at the firm selected. The goal is to ensure that the “old white hairs” at the top are not receiving/taking credit from the lawyers really doing and managing the lion’s share of the work. Some level of research shows that the real working lawyers tend to be predominantly women/POC who are essentially punished by old school origination systems. Thoughts?
