What should you do when someone gives you $250,000? Well, that depends upon who it is, how much was asked of them and why they gave it to you! The answer to this question varies with the circumstances surrounding this gift. Obviously, no matter what the circumstances, you want to thank this person profusely and to let them feel your genuine gratitude. There are many instances, however, where the best, most sophisticated solicitor—the one who always gets the larger gifts—is going to do much more. They are going to ask them to double that amount.
