I like the graph paper types of notebooks, often times a sketch will have to do in order to show someone what you're proposing. Keep the old ones around for a few years, just in case.
Hope this helps.

I think journal is a good idea - just don't be casual or cavalier with your collection of notes.

When you are concerned about legal issues, patents etc., you should have a better solution. Like the meeting minutes since every participant accepts them by not objecting. I don't see much value in court with notes that you wrote yourself to prove your point. It is like me arguing the moon doesn't exist since it is written on the internet (on the website I created myself). but for really being court-proof, you should get professional advice or the company should consult an attorney to have a policy how to handle those things.
i avoid the phone. first I'm too lazy to take notes, and then again it is my version of the story which is useless in court. an email where the client tells you to save money on the chiller despite you writing that it will cost him operating money is better when the client later complains the chiller is inefficient :-)
