Hey Chris, I just met with James... Did you have a moment to talk?
Sure do, how did everything go?
It went well, I got a lot of information I need to start taking steps forward in this matter.
Great to hear. James runs a small but profitable operation. He is a great client.
I just find it difficult to represent someone who is actively poisoning the Great Barrier Reef.
Oh... I see... Unfortunately Reid, James has already been retained by the firm and you are a great Litigation solicitor. We really need you to look after this one for us and achieve a great result.
Okay Chris, I understand. I guess this will be an opportunity for me.
As uncomfortable or difficult as it can be Reid, in this line of work we need to put aside our personal feelings. Our conduct is governed by a set of rules and although you don't like what James is doing that's not what we're here for.
Thanks Chris. I'll get cracking then.
It sure will be Reid. I know you will do good things here. But putting your personal feelings aside is one of the criteria for the job.
