Listen to the latest Drinks With The Deal, where Matthew Goodman, an M&A partner at Sullivan & Cromwell, talks with David Marcus about the transition from associate to partner. “You have to triangulate your time between executing and getting the deals done for your clients, maintaining and building existing relationships, building new relationships, mentoring, training associates, staying on top of issues and trends. To do all that at once almost seems impossible at times, but you have to focus on giving yourself enough space to do those other things.”
