Davis Polk partner Pedro Bermeo was profiled in Law.com as part of the publication’s “How I Made Partner” series. In the Q&A, Bermeo discusses his road to partnership, what he believes to be the keys to successful business development and his advice for up-and-coming associates, among other topics. “I think the prerequisite to successful business development is cultivating and nurturing sincere relationships,” Bermeo said. “Over the years, I’ve learned to try to build meaningful connections with contacts on my transactions, even after the deal is over. Consistency in reaching out is important, but you also need to be genuine, try to get to know people on a more personal level.”
