The first thing I need to do is understand my client's needs so I can communicate that. You have to understand what really matters to the client… The second thing to do is try to understand my adversary's needs,” Ms. Nelles said. She also discussed the importance of keeping long-term professional relationships in mind when working with opposing counsel, her pro bono work and her approach to work-life balance.
