I didnít realise how much Iíd taken this for granted until a recent meeting I attended Ė there were two junior associates from the opposing firm, and neither of them were introduced. Iíve had a name card since I stepped in as a trainee, Iíve always been introduced. Iíve even led meetings. Your opinion here is valued, heard and discussed. The firmís structure also allows for a direct working relationship with partners and mentors, and Iíve had the privilege of second-chairing for Shen Yi since my first year of practice
Iím in a JLV and yeah Iím the junior assoc that donít get introduced. Wtf... and another person always get introduced even though she is a trainee. Reason : she is rich.
