·      Think harder! You need to be able to explain yourself clearly, think through any proposal and consider that there’s always something new to be learned.

·      The relationships with law firms can be fractious, but they can also be really fun! Learn to know how, and when, to respectfully push boundaries. 

·      Be patient! Legal teams can be very busy so make sure you allow projects sufficient time to develop and progress.
