Late Forward

As a young corporate attorney, your legal skills consist primarily of creating PDF signature packets and populating Dropbox folders with files. Your client, however, may email you a question that requires the eye of a lawyer with actual legal knowledge, such as a tax or regulatory specialist.  Your role in this situation is to forward the client’s request to the appropriate specialist and state when the client needs the task to be completed. Specialists really hate it when you forget to forward these things until the day before the deadline and then ask for the deliverable immediately, but things inevitably fall through the cracks. Change the timestamps in Outlook when you finally get around to forwarding the client email request so that it is the client, and not you, who is the unreasonable one.
