Emma is usually very strict with them, but when in front of customers, she is the most protective and spares no effort to praise them.
Among the lawyers present, apart from Serena who is a newcomer, the other lawyers are well–tested and have long adapted to this kind of high–intensity and fast–paced work, so Emma doesn’t talk much about them, and focuses on Serena, mainly to give She cheers.
“Our Lawyer Woodsen, don’t look at her as delicate, but she is very hardworking, serious and responsible in her work. Every time she submits a report, it can be used as a template, not inferior to a senior lawyer.”
Julia Sherman of Better Future Technology Company heard it and couldn’t help boasting
“Your Lawyer Woodsen is really the most hardworking girl I have ever seen. Several times, I saw that she didn’t come home, right? She just stayed up late at work in the company, and only slept on the desk for two hours in the morning. The next day continue.”
Julia Sherman sometimes arrives at the company very early, and will go around their office specially. He often sees her falling asleep on top of a pile of documents, which makes him feel a little unbearable.
For some reason, Serena turned the topic to her. She was not
as desperate as everyone said, but she couldn’t sleep when she got home, and she didn’t finish her work, so she just fell asleep in the company.
She was a little ashamed to be praised by them.
Charlie didn’t praise her, and accused her a little in his words, “I told you many times, you can’t do it like this, the body is the capital of the revolution. Except for lunch, breakfast and dinner are usually not eaten, and you stay up late to work, you are not afraid of sudden death .From today, I will get off work with me on time every day, and I will take you home.”
The other lawyers all laughed, ” Charlie, we also work late at night and have irregular meals. Why are you not afraid of our sudden death?”
“I want you to pick me up and drop off, anyway.”
“Go away.” Charlie scolded.
“Don’t worry about it, Charlie finally found an excuse to drive Serena to and from work.”
Julia Sherman from Better Future Technology Company suddenly realized, “It turns out that Lawyer Charlie Jordan likes Lawyer Woodsen? It’s great. It’s good to work together, share a common language, and adapt to each other’s work and rest schedules. There will be fewer family conflicts in the future. Emma, your law firm does not object to office romances, right?” ”
Emma said, “I have no objection, our law firm is very open- minded. And they are all so excellent, the rich water will not flow into the fields of outsiders.”
Serena listened, and didn’t know how to refute, so she
hoped they would shut up quickly. Penn on the opposite side has been eating slowly all the time, as if he didn’t hear them chatting, very alienated and superior.
Charlie got up and made a bowl of soup for Serena and put it in front of her. Seeing that she ate too little, she lost a lot of weight and could be blown down by a gust of wind.
Serena when he was publicly disclosed, and his concern was beyond words. As for the feelings for Serena, at first I just felt that she was beautiful and comfortable, and it was limited to having a good impression. He is very realistic, and the good impression generated by her appearance is not worth his time and investment, so after observing for a long time, he found that besides being beautiful, she is also very capable of working. As long as she has enough experience, future His grades must be no less than his.
After a long time of deliberation, he decided to pursue Serena. Once the target is determined, he must strengthen the offensive.
However, Serena has a very high rank in this regard, no matter how you show your favor, she will refuse without any trace, just like now, if you give her a bowl of soup, she will not evade you in public and embarrass you, but she will never take a sip either.
This mature way of handling it made Charlie even more obsessed, and that’s what he liked.
A table of people chatted and laughed. After lunch, they went back to their offices to continue their intense work.
Serena’s stomach ached from this meal, not because of Charlie ‘s overtures, but because Penn was sitting across from her, so she was affected, and had no memory of what she ate or how much she ate.
On the other hand, Eric found that Penn was very wrong just now, no, to be precise, he has been very wrong recently, except for work, the rest of the time, he hardly said a word.
Kelly and Blair came back from Florida and reported the situation of Brian and Naser in his office. He listened indifferently. Kelly didn’t speak anymore. After all, she was in charge of technology, and she had the right to arrange Brian’s position, and Penn didn’t need to decide.
But Blair is different, she managed to invite Naser from Florida to NY, what is your attitude now?
Mr. Humphery, Mr. Garret has come to NY, when do you think we will meet today?”
Naser is also a workaholic. He planned to spend two hours communicating and fly back to Florida, and he has already booked a return ticket.
‘Arrange for tomorrow.” Penn is very tired today and has no energy to talk to people.
“No, Mr. Garret flew to NY specially to meet you, and he will
go back after seeing you, the plane at night.” Blair expressed that Naser is very sincere, otherwise there is no need to fly this trip specially.
“Let him come to the company now.” Penn said. In official affairs, he has always been unambiguous, and he will not be condescending, which is a rare talent.
“Okay, I’ll arrange it right away.” Blair called Naser and shared the address with him. After making arrangements, she spoke,
“Then Mr. Humphery, as you said before, as long as Naser comes to NY to meet, you will pay the headhunting fee regardless of whether he is hired or not.” She smiled like a flower, her eyes were shining…
In the eyes of Kelly and Eric, this is acting like a baby.
The girlfriend came back, and the two of them didn’t look like they had quarreled, so why is Penn still looking so bad?
“Go to the human resources department to file, and they will apply for the payment with the financial department.” Penn meant what he said.
Kelly and Eric were speechless, they didn’t do things like this, they had to pay for each meeting, that’s not how you dote on your girlfriend.
“Thank you Mr. Humphery.” Blair turned around after speaking and went to arrange a meeting with Naser.
Kelly couldn’t help but said, ” Penn, this doesn’t comply with the company’s regulations. What name does the
finance department use to make this money?”
Penn “From my personal account.”
This is what he promised at the beginning, and he will not break his promise. In addition, he is also confident that as long as he meets Naser, Naser will definitely choose Better Future Technology Company to work, so the headhunting fee will have to be paid sooner or later.
However, in Kelly’s view, he, Kelly, went mad.
Is Blair really worth your giving up your principles? You’ve always kept a clear line between public and private.”
“I have nothing to do with Blair.”
Penn emphasized again that he doesn’t care what the outside world says, so he doesn’t bother to explain, but for Eric and Kelly, he has made it clear from the beginning.
You see, these two people are standing in front of him now, they just look like who would believe your nonsense?
His mild sympathy towards Blair was all because of that person, and it didn’t seem necessary now.
