I hate the way a partner I work for practices litigation. I am 5 years out and have established somewhat my style and the way I confer with clients and counsel and present myself in Court, however, when working on his cases I just can’t seem to adapt to the way he does things and I notice co-counsel find it (us) annoying too. Anyone ever deal with this? How to approach this?
