Here's a great practical post I almost missed but quite a few others noticed. It's by Blawg Review mainstay Colin Samuels at Infamy or Praise and called "Eight (or Nine) Attributes of a Go-To Lawyer". Colin comments on and even adds to a list from an article in the June 2006 issue of Corporate Counsel by Daniel DiLucchio. Two key traits on the list are:
6. Willing to "put skin in the game" — Able to take a calculated risk with a client and communicate that he's standing behind him.
8. Sense of urgency — Shares the client's need to move quickly in a highly competitive environment.
