What do you consider appropriate assignments for paralegals? For assistants? Different firms seem to have different philosophies. If you could include some info about your firm/practice group (e.g., AmLaw50/100/200, boutique, solo, plaintiff or defense side, litigation or transaction, etc.), that would be helpful.

If so, how do you manage them?
