Any advice/tips for moving from a big city in big law with a high cost of living to a smaller city (law-wise) with no comparable firms? How long should I wait? How should I negotiate salary? Thanks.

I've been potentially shortlisted to run an overseas office of our firm at some point, but my skills in the target language are ... lacking at best. (Basic conversational, at best.) Is this normal?

I’m billing multiple back to back weeks of 55 hours/week and feeling exhausted, but feel weak because in my head I think I should be doing more (NYC biglaw).

2nd yr. Received great feedback in my annual review. Only negative was my hrs. Was told there’s plenty of work to go around, but when I ask partners for more work, it’s never enough to keep me busy.
