4th year M&A associate. Hate M&A, hate being a lawyer generally. What types of non-lawyer jobs could someone like me transition into? (Don’t say PE, lol.)

Been 2nd chair on 3yo case going to trial in 5mos. Got an offer I want to accept. Clients are lawyers and don’t want to burn bridges. Do I reject and stay on the case or do what’s best for me?

I’m a 2017 associate in NYC biglaw. I logged approx. 2300 billable hours in 2019. Is that light, normal or heavy in the biglaw market for RE associates at my level? Thanks in advance for thoughts.
