Rory E. Foster quoted in article “What New Associates Need To Do To Launch A Great Career”Law360 05/01/15
Following is an excerpt:
"When you get a new project, it’s tempting to jump right into the active tasks of writing, reading, research, etc. Before you start, though, take a moment to just think about the work. Try to consider the legal and business goals, likely issues or challenges and how might you approach them, what the work product should look like, who or what might provide useful resources, and so on. Even a few minutes of this 'prework' thinking can significantly improve your end results, as well as the efficiency and creativity with which you get there."
