Friendly Helpful Lawyers 友善助人的律师
Dialog Disk 3-13
There are ways to keep an attorney under control and things running smoothly. I think the best way to demonstrate this is through a dialog showing a negotiation session with an attorney. In this dialog, Tom is the head of sales and responsible for building the team. Pam is the attorney and they're discussing what Tom wants from Pam at the meeting.
Tom: Hi, Pam. Thanks for coming.
Pam: Hi, Tom. It's good to see you again.
Tom: Have a seat and let's get right to it.
Pam: Okay, shoot!
Tom: I've never used you before on a negotiation and we need to set up the ground rules. Stop me if you have a problem.
Pam: All right.
Tom: First of all, no interruptions.
If you see a problem and it can't wait, whisper it to me, or hand me a note.
Otherwise, wait until we're on break or after the session.
Pam: I suppose, if that's the way you want it, but why?
Tom:There shouldn't be anything complicated airing the negotiations, and I want to avoid complications if it's at all possible.
Pam: Sure, I can live with that. Anything else?
Tom: Not really, just that all your comments should come to me before anyone else.
I get the final say on whether it gets into the meeting.
Pam: If you squash something I see as important, I'm going to inform your boss in writing.
Tom: No problem, just be sure to cc me.
