1sr year litigation associate at a V50. Been doing a lot of doc review and constantly just feel like an idiot. So hard to follow all the issues in the case and not much direction at all. Normal?
Is there a huge difference in workload between V50 firms and a smaller national/larger regional firm? I realize this is highly specific to each firm but want to know if there is a pervasive trend.

I am curious - I have an opposing counsel that sends provocative or incorrect emails related to our case late night (eg 11:00 pm Sunday Night, 1:00 am) and does not consider the timing (nor the content) of his emails to be inappropriate - what do you think about lawyers that send late night emails- are they indicative of incivility? Unprofessional? - how best should this behavior be handled.

Anyone else in the FIRE camp (Financial Independence, Retire Early)? Started second guessing 401k contributions, since I'll likely want to start drawing on it well before 59.5. I know there's an exception for the early withdrawal penalty (72t) for equal payments, but I'm wondering if there's a better investment vehicle than the 401k if early retirement is the goal Would be interested to hear others' suggestions/experiences Thanks!
I’ve been at my company (small tech strategy firm) for over a year and still haven’t made a work friend. I’m a guy in my 20s and pretty outgoing but most of my coworkers are older and married. I haven’t found anyone at the company that I’d want to hang out with. I’m jealous of my friends at big consulting firms who are all friends outside of work and go out together on weekends etc (before COVID), even though they don’t get paid as much as me. Any advice besides “make friends outside of work?”
