We have had 2 much younger/junior lawyers, a man & woman join the team supervising us and they are now in charge if regular contact with us through e-mails. The tone of the e-mails from the male, are nothing short of condescending in attitude (much different than our experience with the more senior lawyers) and its starting to irritate.
Believe this person is a.) compensating for being way out of his comfort zone and b.) has it in his mind he’s going to show his management he can ‘get things done’ no matter whose toes he will step on. I have a word for that sort of character: a weasel.
