Any tips on making cold calls better when someone seems unenthused? Just had a very awkward informational call that felt like I was interviewing someone, even though they're the one building a team. It was as if they weren't at all excited by their role or vision. They're a very senior PM too, so enthusiasm was the one thing I kind of expected no matter what 😬
(or maybe they just dismissed my background out the gate and didn't really want to talk to me... but then why take the call at all?)

How do y’all handle attorneys fees award in your retention agreements? Right now I have it as basically a bonus in addition to the contingency, but I have a potential client asking that it be deducted from the gross amount for purposes of calculating the contingency.

My thing is, the fight for attorneys fees is a huge fight in and of itself (not to mention rarely awarded). What incentive do I have to fight for a fee award if I’m not really benefiting from it??
