    Bring Your ‘A’ Game

    “You need to bring your ‘A’ game to every single thing you do. That is one thing I’ve emphasized to summer and new associates as I’ve met with them on their orientation every year. You don’t know what project will change your life. I can almost literally trace my career to a transaction I worked on in 1986.”
