Junior associates fighting on the phone over disclosure. Yay or nay?

Fighting is always a nay and unprofessional

likesmart

Transactional, if it matters, but when I was junior I tried to remain friendly with the other juniors across the table from me in all my deals. The tough decisions aren’t really yours to make and building a rapport with the other side can both make a stressful transaction less intense and actually reap rewards for your client

like

Most likely nay. Why are the junior associates fighting over that when a more senior associate and/or a partner makes the decision?

I can understand disagreeing with a colleague but “fighting” connotes immaturity.

Nayyyy - firstly, what’s the law on the disclosure? Is it required? Secondly, is there a senior associate/partner who can address it?

I will be out of the office for three weeks over the next 2 month. It’s going to be one week at a time not the entire three weeks at once. I feel weird about including so many dates in my Notice of Unavailability. Am I being paranoid or will this be perceived negatively by the court?

Do you need to work at big-name agencies to build a successful career as a creative?

I'm currently at a smaller shop and we do some pretty fun work. I like the folks and the opportunities coming my way (even if they might not have the biggest budgets, we have some fun brands + briefs). That said, it doesn't have great name recognition on a national scale + I worry that, the longer I stick around, the more limited my options might be.

I'd be grateful for advice or clarity here 🙏

I don’t know if this happens in the US but I’m sick and tired of people trying to cheapen our profession.

A friend asked for a quotation for some work. I sent my initial proposal (which I think, was pretty low) and instantly said that I was too expensive and if I could reduce it.

It is what it is, if you want a cheaper attorney for your company (which in the long run may be more expensive) go for it 🤷🏽‍♂️.
