Tips on how to handle a client who complains to you about your associate? The issue is ultimately a personality clash, rather than a quality issue, but in this case, the associate has very specific expertise and the client complains if an associate without that expertise is involved in the deal. I am also not the type to throw associate under the bus and the preference is to handle it in a way that means the associate can continue to work on the matters rather than restaff it.
