Wow, you have to be in the local office everyday if you're on the bench? How big is your local office?!

I thought this was actually a smart element to ACN's business model - don't require people to be in the office and you don't have to shell out big bucks for a space big enough to hold them all.

My local office is very very small. I have a hard time believing they are really enforcing this

Not happening if I go back on the bench. Not a chance

My law firm has the same business development expectations for attorneys based in big markets, such as New York or Los Angeles, as they do for attorneys in smaller markets where it is far more difficult to develop business, such as New Orleans and Louisville. That has always struck me as ludicrous.

Am I missing something?
