I have completed a lot of deals in my time as a lawyer. On only one deal, a partner rewarded each member of our deal team with a luxurious timepiece for our efforts. Every other deal has been judged against the timepiece deal since that time. I now make sure to clarify that I will be rewarded with a luxurious item before accepting any additional work. One time a partner reminded me that I receive a paycheck for my hours. I had to laugh at that. That stuff goes straight to loans. You want my hours? Pony up a timepiece (or similarly luxurious item).
