Me in a minute
I grew up as a transactional lawyer and I am an absolute transaction junkie.
I especially enjoy the intensity of negotiations and the rush of closing a deal. I find that I work best when I know the "story" behind the deal and can internalise the motivations and objectives of the clients. I am very much vested in my clients which is why I often talk in terms of what "we" want to do and what "we" want to achieve in the transaction. This is even though I know full well I will not be making the same multiple on the transaction.
If I were not a lawyer, I would have loved to become a professional triathlete or something equally punishing.
