Plenty will. The question is, have the clients scheduled it as a holiday?

This. “Holiday” at my firm. Means nothing if clients want a call.

My firm has it as a holiday for all US offices.

Yes, mine has. But it sadly means nothing practically speaking as it is disregarded by clients.

A holiday is just a day that the staff doesn’t have to show up. I fully expect that clients will want us to be working that day but fingers are crossed.

Juneteenth was a “firm holiday” at my firm last year yet it was also my highest billing day of the year…

Has been crushingly busy for me both years we’ve ‘observed’ it. So shameless on the firms part.
