I found out that my firm does NOT have profit sharing. I approached the head partner of the firm and proposed a new potential client, this would be a really well paying company.

Staffing several associates from different practice areas together to do a lot of different things on what was a very small case to begin with is so cool!

The client feels we understand their business, our associates ramp up their hours, and our firm boosts its revenue! Corporate clients, after all, usually pay up without asking questions.

Remember: You can turn even the smallest case into a multi-million case.

Hi there! Just started in consulting, and have dress code questions. I came over from financial institutions where I wasn’t client facing and therefore allowed more “business casual” items like white blazers, colorful blouses and bright red accessories. Everything online seems to indicate business formal is literally black and white, is there room for color as long as I look like a capable/ professional adult? Examples of outfit inspirations below.
