This is the stupid part. It used to all be conference calls and now you are on zoom or whatever and it takes up part of your screen (which you need if you don’t have a high speed printer to print everything).

i usually just call in from my phone and bypass any use of computer/phone apps. only downside is i usually don't really have as good an idea of how many people are on the call as i do with the traditional conference call services.

Yeah but firms are increasingly unsubscribing from the dial in services to cut costs

You can dial in to Zoom. I guess I could see that being frowned upon since if you do you will just show up as a phone number with a blank screen on other people's zoom apps.

edit: on another note, i understand those services were crazy expensive and zoom etc is a lot cheaper while actually offering a lot more services. reminds me of nyc cabs getting cucked by uber.

I've had so many client calls where the partner tells me in advance he wants me to lead and he will just listen in and provide a comment or two. then when the call starts the partner gives the greeting and then proceeds to run the entire call and i never say anything.

i'm a slacker so i appreciate it but i can imagine strivers being miffed.

No, it’s fine but I don’t speak unless necessary.

Serious note: I’ve worked on my confidence. Once I realized that nearly everyone is bullshitting, I got more comfortable with doing it. Have to bring work in the door and can’t do that if you say “hm well I’m not sure I mean I guess I could look that up and talk to a tax guy and we could propose some pros and cons with options to maximize...” Right answer: “I do those all the time.”

This is some real fucking wisdom right here. We all know the actual answer is normally "I can look it up," but prospective clients 100% want to hear that you do them all the time.

Other thing I've discovered about bringing in clients: it's like getting pussy in that its a numbers game. Best way to get pussy is to tell a shitload of girls they're hot. Best way to get clients is to tell a shitload of prospective clients to use you.

I can only speak for my practice, but for large IP deals, there’s at least some in-person meeting.

Yes. I haven’t had an in-person negotiation in 8 years and Latham demanded that for some reason. All trading markups and discussions over the phone.

Only Zoom calls I’ve had where people turn cameras on are cap markets DD calls with 20 people on them and initial intro calls with client.

There’s nothing of note. Just doing work you could be doing more efficiently at your office, and going back to your hotel at night to order food and work on other clients’ matters. One time a client (older Indian female who is not the CEO of Pepsi) made me book her limos to dinner, to hotel, and to airport. Only story of any interest was for a closing when I was junior. Superstar senior associate (now on management committee) and I travelled to Boston for in-person final negotiations and closing. We had a big conference room at seller’s counsel’s firm with accordion files all over the huge table. Senior associate told me to check them all to make sure they contained the latest versions and they did not. He tells me to throw them at the garbage can and let some hit the floor around it to make a show and replace them with the right ones. I do as I am told. Senior associate from other side comes in, asks what’s going on, and is steaming - thought he was going to hit the senior on my side. Senior on my side stands up, is 8” taller, other guy sulks away. 15 mins later we get a call from partner at our firm who didn’t make the trip asking what the hell we’re doing because he just got a call that we’re “tearing up the closing room and making a real mess.”
