Resumé question - I’m wanting to portray myself as someone with the EQ to be able to relate to clients, even in situations that are less than positive. For example, we had a client project that was way off track, expectations were missed, and they were considering terminating the contract. I stepped in and calmed the waters, reset expectations, and turned the project around. Any tips on quantifying this in a results-oriented way on my resumé that MBB wants to see?

Juniors (not a reproach but well meant advice): Learn the « language » of the matters and practice areas you are working on, eg if a client matter has a nickname learn the real name and the nickname; if the client refers to something as something else learn that as well. It will help you communicate with both the client and senior lawyers.
