John is a great person to have in the department. Although he is not my manager, I feel like I can go to him for support whenever I need it and now matter how busy he is, he will always find time to support me. I strive to be as good a lawyer as him.
He was the main contact for the integration and was working non-stop at that, as well as doing his day to day job and I think he should be rewarded for this. He is often involved in major projects which sometimes would not go as successful if they did not have his input. In general, it is not always the legal department that gets recognised in the business and I think that if anyone should be recognised, it should be John.
